Celebrate Earth Day April 22

Take Flight 

This Earth Day wander through the Springs Preserve’s unique Butterfly Habitat and witness the fascinating dance between butterflies, the plants that sustain them, and their important role as pollinators in the ecosystem. You'll emerge from the Butterfly Habitat at Springs Preserve with a better understanding of the environment needed for the survival of these spectacular animals. Tickets are $3 for non-members; $2 for Springs Preserve value members. The seasonal habitat is open daily from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. through May 28. springspreserve.org 

Power to the Petal 

Give your pre-roll a rosy flair. Rolling your cannabis in rose petals is trending right now. All you need is rose petals and an oven-safe pan. Line three petals together on oven-safe pan, then set your oven to broil, and put them in for about 10 seconds. After removing the pan, the next step is to line up the petals by licking the bottoms. They should all be sticking together. Now, place them back on the pan and back in the oven for 10 more seconds. Remove and wait about two minutes before adding bud. They will be nice and crisp, but workable. Finally, drop in your strain of choice, already ground up, and proceed rolling as normal.
