MONARCH TAG AND RELEASE PROGRAM AT THE PARKER RIVER NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE

The Monarch Gardener is available to bring an educational lecture to your community group or gardening club.

 

The conservation/gardening lecture "Sustaining the Monarch, one Yard at a Time," covers monarch biology, conservation and gardening for monarchs and pollinators. "A Native Transformation" lecture tells the story of transforming a typical suburban property with non-native foundation plantings into a haven for wildlife with over 80 species of native plants and multiple rain gardens. They are both appropriate for garden clubs, older students, and conservation groups. 


"Katie, thanks so much for your wonderful presentation on the plight of the monarch butterfly. Our garden club members absolutely raved about it. Now we know how to use this knowledge to carefully select our plants for the garden. You presented a good combination of information on the butterflies and other pollinators, and plant information. It was very useful information that we can take to our gardens." -The Hamilton-Wenham Garden Club

 

Programs can include live plants and animals (seasonal), crafts, milkweed seed planting and seed ball making. Please contact themonarchgardener@gmail.com for more information. 

 

"It has been great working with you over the past monarch season, Katie.  Your knowledge, enthusiasm, punctuality, and professionalism make it a joy."

-Ranger Matt Poole US Fish and Wildlife Service
