About this Monarch Project:
The Warr-Acres Library garden enjoyed lots of Monarch visitors last summer, although we didn’t get many tag-and-release opportunities. We released about 60 butterflies, but few hatched on the weekends. We’ll hope for better luck next year, but of course we can all feel good just knowing how helpful this garden was, to the Monarchs and other pollinators. And a fun new sighting occurred there recently: a clutch of Bordered Patch caterpillars on our Cow-pen daisies!
Thanks so much to all the volunteers who are signing up to make these gardens a reality! Our dream is to install a garden at every library in the Metro system.
Thanks to the managers of Warr Acres (Barbara Beasley) and Belle Isle (Cassie Spindle), for allowing us to use their libraries as the “guinea pigs” for this project. We’re proud of our libraries for joining this important educational effort.
