Monarch populations are at an all-time low. This is due in part to a widespread decrease in milkweed plants, required as food by caterpillars. Join us in a photographic journey to learn of the monarch’s plight and things you can do to help in your yard and neighborhood. Perfect for the whole family.

Cost is $10 for members of the Foundation of the State Arboretum, $12 for nonmembers, and $20 for the whole family. This presentation is part of the Foundation of the State Arboretum’s public program series.
