Blooms and Brews

The Missoula County Department of Ecology and Extension service is launching a monthly education series called Blooms & Brews. This series will feature expert speakers on various topics related to gardening and our natural world. Donations to this series will go towards the creation and maintenance of the 2.5-acre educational gardens that will be adjoining the newly constructed Rocky Mountain Gardens and Exploration Center at the Missoula Fairgrounds, which will be home to the Missoula County Weed District and Extension, the Missoula Butterfly House & Insectarium and the Missoula Conservation District.
