Monarchs and Milkweed: Can the Monarch Butterfly Be Saved from Extinction?

11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Monarch butterfly populations have been declining in serious numbers for years. These valuable pollinators need help from home gardeners. Come to this workshop and learn about the life cycle of the Monarch Butterfly, its distribution in the United States, reasons for concern and hope for this amazingly beautiful butterfly. Class will be taught by Master Gardener Suzanne Clarke. She will explain what the home gardener can do to help their survival. You will also find out about her caterpillar-to-butterfly cage, where you can watch the growth and metamorphosis yourself.

Suzanne Clarke has been a gardener all of her life, beginning when she first helped her grandmother pick peonies and lilies to take to the cemetery in Indianapolis for Memorial Day when she was a youngster. She has lived and gardened in Germany, Taiwan, England, Zimbabwe, as well as in the United States.
