Kate and Katherine Dresdner have raised and released over 200 wild Monarch butterflies during summer seasons. They will talk about this mysterious and magical species: the Monarch’s amazing migration for thousands of miles to its winter home in a forest in Mexico, and its developmental life-cycle from egg to caterpillar and caterpillar to butterfly. Kate and Katherine will discuss how to raise Monarchs, monarch health issues, protecting them from predators, and how to grow milkweed, the sole host plant for Monarchs. Their interest and passion for this species developed from gardening with native plants and creating habitat for birds, butterflies, and pollinators. The talk and power point presentation will be preceded by a brief business meeting, including elections to the FPNL Board of Trustees.
