The Cumberland County Penn State Master Gardeners will hold a special grand opening and pollinator education event on May 12 at the Adams Ricci Butterfly Garden near the Midway Pavilion at Adams Ricci Park, 100 E. Penn Drive in Enola, Cumberland County from Noon to 3:00.

Cumberland County Penn State Master Gardeners planned and planted this new demonstration garden in 2017. Now, in 2018, they are ready to showcase the garden as it continues to grow in beauty, activity, and educational value.
