The Monarch Butterfly migration is truly one of the world’s greatest natural wonders, yet it is threatened by habitat loss in North America, both at their overwintering sites and throughout the spring and summer breeding range as well. Monarch Waystations are places that provide the resources necessary for monarchs to produce successive generations and sustain their migration.
The Lexington Council Garden Clubs is sponsoring a program on Monarch Waystations – what the average homeowner needs to know to install and maintain a beautiful garden that will also help preserve the Monarch Butterfly.
The program will be held at Morning Pointe East senior center, 150 Shoreside Drive (off Richmond Road) on Saturday, May 17, at 10:00 am. It is open to the public. Admission is $5.00, which includes a butterfly friendly plant for each participant.
The program will be presented by Linda Porter, a member of the Lexington Chapter of Wild Ones and the Garden Club of Kentucky. She is the state Special Project Butterfly Chairperson for the Garden Club of Kentucky and also chairs the Monarch Waystation Joint Committee. She has been a butterfly enthusiast and educator for over 17 years.
