When was the last time you saw a monarch butterfly? How about a milkweed plant? Join us as we discuss the symbiotic relationship of these two species and learn how we can help the threatened monarch butterfly population survive and reproduce.
In this one hour webinar, students will learn from a local “citizen scientist” about the state of the monarch butterfly, their lifecycle and migration, and why milkweed is so critical. Learn how to propagate and grow drought-tolerant, native milkweed to attract monarch butterflies and other pollinators back to the community. You will also learn how to get involved as a “citizen scientist” and monitor breeding habitat or tag monarchs during the migration season. Native milkweed seeds will be provided to all who register.
Photos below show a monarch butterfly tagged in American Fork, Utah, and recovered after it migrated all the way to Pismo Beach, CA.
