Wednesday Walk and Talk: Monarchs in the Garden

Join Garden Guide and trained Master Naturalist Barbara Wiederkehr for these programs that explore garden cultures, native plants, and charismatic insects. Each program includes a brief illustrated introductory talk and time in the Garden.  In case of rain, the whole program will be in the classroom. Dress for walking and the weather that day.  These familiar butterflies are welcome pollinators in the garden, but they also have a fascinating life cycle—which is now under threat by a variety of factors, mostly man-made. Hunt for these creatures and their nectar or host plants in the Garden. In case of inclement weather, Barbara discusses gardening to attract them.

This program is full.  Please call 804-262-9887 x320 to be placed on a waiting list.
