Monarch Butterflies And Your Yard

April 26, 2011

Retired teacher Judy Kesser will discuss monarch butterflies on Wednesday, May 4, at 1 p.m. in the Glendale Senior Citizens' Clubroom on the lower level of Glen Hills Middle School, 2600 W. Mill Road. The program will last approximately one hour.

 

Kesser began raising and tagging monarchs in 2005 and released close to 700 monarchs last summer. She will use power point to show the stages of the monarch's life cycle. Her yard is an official Monarch Way Station because she has both the host and nectar plants in abundance. She has traveled to butterfly sanctuaries in Mexico to observe their winter home. Kesser will discuss the threats to their survival in both the United States and Mexico.

 

All who attend will receive a packet of milkweed seeds along with an informational bookmark from Monarch Watch. All seniors are welcome to attend this free event; membership is not required. For further information, call 414-540-2100.
