Schumacher Farm Park

Where Dane County's Rural Heritage Comes Alive.

Monarch Butterfly Conservation and Caterpillar Monitoring

Join Master Gardener, Gae Bergmann, as she talks about the life of a Monarch butterfly and conservation efforts. Attendees will learn about the Monarch life cyle, why milkweed is necessary to that cycle and how to make their property a more inviting habitat to butterflies.

After the workshop, we will conduct a Monarch caterpillar monitoring observation to collect data on abundance and caterpillar stages at the farm park. Workshop attendees are welcome to participate.

Tuesday, July 9th from 4-6 pm
