Monarch Watch Open House (Public Event)

Saturday September 14, 2013
8:00am - 2:00pm
Foley Hall
Join us at our Fall Open House to celebrate the arrival of migrating monarchs coming from the north. This free event is designed to please children and adults alike. At the Open House you can learn about creating Monarch Waystations and see the magnificent butterfly and pollinator garden created and maintained by Margarete Johnson and the Douglas County Master Gardeners. Bring your cameras. It is well worth a visit. As usual, we will provide refreshments, lots of show & tell (including a honey bee observation hive and some "Oh, my!" insects you may have never seen before), tours of our gardens and lab, hands-on activities, games, videos, monarch tagging demonstrations, and, of course, lots of monarch caterpillars, pupae, and butterflies! We also plan to have a limited number of Monarch pupae (to emerge as a butterfly at home or at school) that will be given to each child in attendance, while supply lasts.
