Royal Assistance

Give homage to the king

Give homage to the king

The Monarch butterfly is one of nature’s most magnificent creatures. Their annual migration is just beginning. I’m linking to a good article on how to help these “royal” visitors. Take a bit to look it over and add to your knowledge. Here’s the link; http://www.learner.org/jnorth/tm/monarch/conservation_action.html

Along that same regal line, Monarchwatch here in Lawrence will be hosting it’s annual Open House on Saturday, September 13 from 8am to 2pm. At the Open House you can learn about creating Monarch Waystations and see the magnificent butterfly and pollinator garden created and maintained by Douglas County Master Gardeners. Weather permitting, you will see an abundance of butterflies and numerous other small but important pollinators. On a good day over 20 species of butterflies visit the garden. The Biohouse, adjacent to the garden, will be filled with wildlife. The Biohouse and garden contain numerous butterfly flowers. Bring your cameras. It is well worth a visit. Best of all it’s FREE and “fun for all ages” (my emphasis). Get more details here; http://monarchwatch.org/openhouse/
