I’ll be doing a presentation on monarch waystations on Thursday, April 4, at 7 p.m. at St. Michael’s Episcopal Church, 2025 Bellefonte Drive for the Lexington Chapter of Wild Ones (Facebook). Visitors are welcome.
Monarch butterflies are in trouble. Their numbers are the lowest ever recorded and the World Wildlife Fund has declared the monarch migration to be endangered. One way we can help these butterflies is to create monarch waystations – habitats that provide milkweed and nectar plants to encourage monarchs as well as other butterflies and pollinators.
Monarchs are dear to my heart, and I was moved by their story as told in the Flight of the Butterflies documentary movie. I’m very concerned about their survival, and I hope to encourage as many people as possible to provide habitats for them. I’d be glad to see you at the presentation.
