Monarch CaterpillarSave the Monarchs! A lecture and demonstration with live caterpillars and Monarch butterflies at Pinecone Home and Garden Center. Date to be announced (we are waiting for the butterflies to show up in our area.) Please leave us your email address and phone number and we will let you know the details.

Did you know? The life cycle of the Monarch butterfly has four stages and four generations. The stages are egg, larvae, pupa and adult butterfly, and the four generation means four butterflies passing through these four stages within a year. ​ ​

We will explain each stage and have live examples to see. How exciting to learn about such a beautiful but fragile part of nature! Learn how YOU can be a part of group of conscientious individuals just like yourself who are helping to ensure this beautiful butterfly who is in serious decline, will continue to live on and prosper!

  • Asclepias (Milkweed) the only food source for the Monarchs available NOW
  • Bring your children – it is a wonderful opportunity for the little ones to learn the importance of the “Saving” the Monarch!
