The final summer garden program ‘Monarch Butterflies’ is scheduled for August 17. Come and learn why Monarch butterflies are in trouble and what we can do to help them. Attendees will search for Monarch caterpillars in the Friendship Gardens and learn how to raise them until they emerge and are able to fly to Mexico. Each person attending will receive a potted common milkweed plant to take home and plant to help attract monarch butterflies to their garden. There will be books and butterfly containers for a few lucky participants. This information is for all ages and will be shared by Master Gardener Carol McKinley. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
