Meet the Monarchs
Monarch butterflies are colorful and delightful garden visitors that depend on milkweed as a host for their eggs and food for their caterpillars. It can be easy and fun to raise them. Learn about planting milkweed, finding monarch eggs, and the care and feeding of the beautiful striped caterpillars. Watch them turn to chrysalises, emerge as butterflies, and then get tagged for their fall migratory journey to Mexico. This workshop is for those of all ages who care about the environment and want to help increase monarch and other pollinator populations.
Our presenter is Ted Kuklinski, President of Newton Conservators, who has been raising monarchs for several seasons and whose front yard is a Monarch Way Station.. He has been a board member of Newton Conservators since the late 1990’s and has served as e-Bulletin editor, lecture coordinator, video producer, walk leader, and vice president, and he is particularly active at the Dolan Pond Conservation Area in West Newton.
