Monarch Waystation in a Suburban Yard

Monarchs are one of the most recognizable butterflies. In this class, we’ll teach you to the requirements needed to turn your yard into a Monarch Waystation that will provide for the Monarch during their migrations.

Additional Information

Monarch populations continue to decline. Your yard can provide a place that provides the needed resources from egg to chrysalis during their migrations. We will discuss nectar and host plants and the pros and cons of different types of milkweeds.
