Free Workshop: Milkweeds for Monarchs:
Creating Monarch Habitat
September 12: 11:00am - 12:00pm
201 Boundary Lane, St. Michaels Directions
The Mid-Atlantic Monarch Consortium, a partnership
led by Environmental Concern (EC), is pleased to present the first of a
series of educational workshops on Monarch butterflies. This
series will offer homeowners an opportunity to learn more about this
important North American “Near Threatened” Species.
Participants will learn about the Monarch butterfly,
and the dependence of the Monarch caterpillars on native milkweed for
survival. Tips for plant selection and habitat creation techniques will
be discussed. These important tips will support the creation of Monarch
habitat restoration projects on the Eastern Shore. Participants will
tour EC’s Fall Native Plant sale where milkweed and other
pollinator-friendly plants will be available for purchase.
Plant native Milkweed - create Monarch habitat in
your own backyard!
Visit our Native
Plant Sale afterwards to purchase plants for your yard.
