Just a few thoughts -
- The monarch peak in Kansas is mid to late September - depending on the year. The population has been on a pretty rapid decline for the last 10 years.
*Rebecca Foster (one of the Wetland Learners Interns) also works at Monarch Watch. (field trip pix
*Depending on your landscaping, it seems within the realm of possible for the Lied Center to be designated a

of our school perfs for next year...obviously this story and the others they
will be telling as well, Little Cloud and the Mixed Up Chameleon all
have nature themes. I thought we might be able to tie this perf. to what you
all are doing out at the wetlands (maybe gear the tours for a younger audience
as Hungry Cat. will be for K-2 or 3). We could write a grant to Kansas Arts
