Learn How to Help the Declining Monarch Population 
and other Local Butterflies

Besides increasing environmental threats to the Monarch population, those that survive face many challenges in their natural life cycle, including other carnivores who eat them in their egg, caterpillar and chrysalis stage. You can help by raising them safely in your home until they reach the adult stage. It’s easy, fun and educational for the whole family.

This program will teach you how to do it, plus how to help our other local butterflies.

Since the only thing Monarch caterpillars can eat is milkweed, all families attending will be sent home with a milkweed plant to get them started attracting Monarchs to their yard and providing Monarchs with their vital food source.
