You won't want to miss Kansas University Monarch Watch program's annual spring open house and plant sale.

The event will be:

• 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday

• at Foley Hall on KU’s West Campus.

Nearly 4,000 butterfly plants will be on sale, including both annuals and perennials. Modest contributions are suggested for the plants. The plants include milkweeds, which help sustain the monarch migration.

Games for children and other monarch butterfly and bee exhibits will be available as well.
