This year Frontera began hosting guided walks on Friday mornings: first it was the incredible birds in the winter months; then butterflies as Spring arrived and the weather heated up; and now, well, there is simply everything… the migrating songbirds, the butterflies, dragonflies, and the reptiles. And, of course, always the plants — the natives that we plant, nurture and protect in the Thicket; the host and larvae plants in the butterfly gardens.
We are happy to announce we have enlisted the help of a true “Renaissance Man” to guide visitors on the Frontera grounds pointing out some of the amazing things that happen here. John Thaxter has done a bit of everything, usually with a bend toward the natural world: he has raised herbs (large scale and small), he’s a certified master naturalist, he is willing to pitch in and paint the faces of visiting children with magical creatures large and small, and his personality and willingness to share his information makes him the sort of character we just love to have around. On Friday mornings during the month of May, stop by Frontera for a cup of coffee and a walk with John. He’ll open your eyes to new experiences, sights and sounds in the Thicket!
