Monarchs & Milkweed: Creating Space For Pollinators presentation Wednesday, October 18 in Helena

Monarch butterfly populations are in decline, largely due to a decline in habitat, specifically – milkweed. Join Montana WILD and the Endangered Species Coalition to create a “Monarch Waystation” by planting native milkweed around the Center. Biologist Glenn Marangelo from the Missoula Insectarium will give a short presentation on the life history and conservation status of the N. American monarch butterfly, after we create new habitat.
