The Monarch butterfly is one of the most familiar butterflies in North America. Its caterpillars can only eat milkweed plants, and milkweed populations have declined throughout much of their range. This class will use a slide show to describe the Monarch's biology, ecology, and migration path. We will see how crucial the St. Louis region is to the Monarch migration and how we can make a difference in the recovery of both milkweed and the Monarchs that depend on it. Learn about the fantastic journey the Monarch butterfly takes each fall as it flies through St. Louis on its way to Mexico, and learn how you can grow several varieties of milkweed in your home garden. Designed for adults only.
