June 13 Milkweed, Monarchs and Miracles!

Presenter: Marge Sagstetter, Washington County Master Gardener

We received handouts and were presented information about the incredible story of Monarch butterflies.  There are many ways we can help; planting milkweed, including nectar plants in our gardens and even raising them ourselves.   Taken in to our homes, the Monarch's survival rate from egg to butterfly increases to almost 100%.  In the wild, their survival rate is less than 10%.

Here is a link to a short National Geographic YouTube video that shows the life cycle.
