Two lectures and demonstrations with live caterpillars and Monarch butterflies at Pinecone Home and Garden Center
Class #1 Date: Saturday Sept. 15th at 11:00 a.m. This class you will be able to see the caterpillars, their chrysalis stage and the butterflies themselves.
Class #2 Saturday Sept. 22nd at 11:00 a.m. This is the very exciting class where you participate in helping us tag and then releasing the Monarchs!
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!
