The plight of Monarchs concerns me. With the help of a very talented Marin County Master Gardener, and some very ambitious students, we have designed a Monarch Way Station. A CERTIFIED Monarch Way Station!
The garden requires maintenance.
Some years their populations are better than others.
Students come. Students leave. They grow up and move on.
Second and third generation butterflies return. Drink, lay eggs, live and flit around the garden.
Eggs hatch. Caterpillars thrive.
Chrysalis forms in the most unusual places.
Butterflies emerge. Fly away. Move on. Just like the kids.
From CURIOSITY to PASSION, I love this project. I love the beauty of nature. I love the idea of making a difference. No matter how small. It’s a difference.
Challenge: Check out the links above. Plant Milkweed. And watch.
