The Monarch Butterfly is like royalty in North American popular culture. Their fall migration covers as much as 3,000 miles and takes 6 generations to complete! In recent years Monarch populations have plummeted by over 90%, primarily due to a drastic loss in their only larval food plant – milkweed. Join the District Biologist for an indoor presentation on the natural history and migration marvels of the monarch butterfly. Afterwards, if the weather cooperates, we will head outside to plant, weed, and water in the butterfly garden. Contact Kelly to register at kdavidson@mvsd.org or 925-228-5635 x19.

    Space is limited to 12 participants.
