Ramsey Parks & Recreation Presents: Monarch Pollinator Series

Monarch Cropped

Want to learn more about Minnesota’s state butterfly and the impact they have on the ecosystems right in our own backyards? Experts from the Monarch Joint Venture will share amazing facts about the monarch butterfly - from egg to migration, learn how a butterfly gets its wings and completes one of the largest migrations on the planet. Come away with some simple tips of how you can help monarch butterflies at home.

Join us for events throughout the summer! This event is part of a Monarch Pollinator Event Series. The first session begins with a foundational background on monarch butterflies, the second session will provide starter plants and information to begin your very own monarch pollinator garden, and the third session will include participation in a community science project! It is recommended to participate in Monarch Butterflies 101 if you plan to attend the Planting for Monarchs or Community Science sessions. Participation in all events is not required, but information builds upon previous sessions.
