Founded in 2003, Southlake Perennial Garden Society (PGS) is a non-profit organization in Southlake, Texas, dedicated to educating its members on gardening topics specific to the North Texas area.
The primary focus of the group is native and adapted drought tolerant perennials and grasses. Our purpose is to promote, encourage and share ideas with other gardeners regarding the implementation of native and adapted plants and perennials in the suburban Texas landscape.
We host the biannual Southlake Garden Tour with proceeds used for community gardening education and sponsor the Southlake Monarch Butterfly Festival and Release.
Event - Southlake Annual Monarch Butterfly Festival
September 17, 2022
Each year, Southlake PGS sponsors the Monarch Butterfly Release. Together with the City of Southlake we purchase the butterflies. PGS maintains them and coordinates the tagging event. This is part of the University of Kansas Science Research Project called "Monarch Watch". This enables the University to learn about Monarch migration patterns.
Along with the City of Southlake, PGS helps the children release the butterflies to the delight of everyone.
