Jamestown, NY – Monarch Butterfly populations have decreased 97% over the last ten years.
Your yard can help them recover.
On Wednesday, May 14, 2014, at the Audubon Center & Sanctuary, “Butterfly Activism: Turning Your Yard into a Butterfly Haven” will walk you through everything you need to know to create a place where butterflies thrive.
From 7- 9 p.m., you will learn how a few simple plants and paying attention to basic butterfly needs can transform your yard into a butterfly paradise.
While butterflies seem to appear like magic in some yards and to only fly through others, you can learn how to make the butterflies stay in your yard by providing the food, habitat and shelter they require for all stages of their lives.
The workshop will be indoors and will include a tour of Audubon’s butterfly garden at the end.
