Upcoming: Milkweed & Monarchs Workshop

The life cycle of the monarch butterfly relies on the presence of milkweed, but other pollinators also enjoy it.

Friday, May 8th, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. we will be offering a workshop on the life cycle of monarch butterflies. The milkweed plant plays an essential part in the monarchs journey–without it, the butterflies would not survive. The amount of monarchs in our area has decreased significantly. Help them by growing low-maintenance milkweed in your yard!

Each attendee will go home with a milkweed plant and an additional packet of seeds for planting! There is a $15 registration fee.

To register, call us at (850) 926-3931.
