Learn about the lifecycle of monarch butterflies and Hand take home a kit to hand-raise a monarch from egg to butterfly!
We are thrilled to offer our popular monarch workshop again this summer! Andrea Matz, District Program Coordinator at Oldham County Conservation District, will lead a talk on our pollinating friends, the monarch butterflies. This is the season for their Southern migration, and it’s an important time to be aware and protect them. We will learn how to hand-raise monarchs through their complete lifecycle: from eggs, to caterpillars, to chrysalises, and finally monarchs! Topics include the migration routes, how to find and identify milkweed in your environment, and how to collect and nurture butterfly eggs.
Ticket price includes a monarch kit with a monarch egg, a pop-up mesh habitat container, a tropical milkweed plant, and full instructions. We will provide a link for the Zoom virtual session as the date gets closer. Note that you will pick up the monarch kit from Yew Dell at a later date.
