The upcoming Hurley Park Butterfly Release on Sunday, Oct. 6, at 2 p.m., is a great event at which to learn about Monarch butterflies and other butterfly species, their migration, and milkweed (their host plant). Attendees are encouraged to arrive early to find a good seat as the release happens quickly. Food trucks will be available for food purchase.

Applications are available for residents interested in serving on the City’s 12 active, standing boards and commissions created and appointed by Salisbury City Council.
Butterflies are unique, beautiful and come in an array of colors. In Hurley Park, we see many pollinators from honey bees to the lowly moths. One thing that all pollinators have in common is that they need a food source. Luckily, Hurley Park provides just that!
Many times the fall is overlooked as a great time to garden. In many horticulturalist’s opinion it is the best time to plant, especially trees and shrubs.
