Come to the Elm Street Farmer’s Market to learn about Monarch Butterflies in a featured workshop! These colorful creatures are not as abundant as in the past due to lack of suitable milkweed for their egg-laying and as a caterpillar food source. Learn about different types of native milkweed and invasive imposter plants. We will discuss the interesting life cycle (and likely display live examples at various stages), steps you can take to help them grow the population, and their incredible fall migration. You will even learn how to identify and collect monarch eggs and raise them through caterpillar, chrysalis, and butterfly stages with a free handy guide.  Ted Kuklinski will be leading this workshop.
