PROGRAM LOCATION HAS CHANGED TO THE NOBLESVILLE!
Join Myrene Brown for an informative program about the Monarch butterfly.  This visual program will cover the basics of modifying your garden to act as monarch habitat.  The monarch  population has declined 90% in the past two decades.  By adding a few extra touches to your garden you can help to increase the numbers of this beautiful butterfly by giving them the habitat needed for survival.  Make your garden a place where monarchs can feed and reproduce.  Watch their metamorphosis in your own garden.  See up close the change from tiny egg, to interesting caterpillar, into a jewel like chrysalis from which the colorful monarch butterfly will emerge to add interest to your garden as it flies from flower to flower collecting nectar.
