Description
April 13th
“Invasive Removal and Pollinator Workshop at Monarch Way Station”
9-1pm, Arboretum North Location
Parking across the street from the Ohio 4H
Educational workshop and training at the beginning, will show examples of invasive plant examples. We will plant pollinators in the “Monarch Way Station."
Chadwick Arboretum has created a Monarch Butterfly Waystation in and around the Prairie Plant Research site, where these migratory butterflies can produce successive generations and sustain their migration. Each fall, hundreds of millions of monarch butterflies migrate from the United States and Canada to overwintering areas in Mexico and California where they wait out the winter until conditions favor a return flight in the spring. The monarch migration is truly one of the world's greatest natural wonders, yet it is threatened by habitat loss in North America – at the overwintering sites and throughout the spring and summer breeding range.
