Learn how easy it is to create your own Monarch Waystation! A waystation is simply a garden that provides food and habitat for Monarch butterflies and nurtures them through their complete life cycle.

Texas Master Naturalist Carol Clark will present the amazing story of the Monarch butterfly life cycle and migration, clarify some common misconceptions about Monarchs, explain historic and current threats to Monarch populations and show why Texas is a pivotal location for Monarchs' future success. The program also covers real steps you and other North Texas residents can take to help bolster the Monarch population, and what to plant to feed Monarchs. In addition, Carol will provide a list of plants. Come join us Thursday evening for this exciting program.
