Monarch butterfly project at Pleasant Valley Conservancy: volunteers needed Sunday May 22, 2016!

Monarch butterflies need all the help they can get! Pleasant Valley Conservancy (PVC) has lots of Monarch habitat, but more is  needed to replenish the diminishing populations of these important and attractive migrating insects.

At PVC, thanks to Kathie's efforts, we have been awarded a grant from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to encourage Monarchs. Among other things, this grant has supported the purchase of seedlings of two important Monarch plants: swamp milkweed (Asclepias incarnata) and meadow blazing star (Liatris ligulostylis).

Volunteer help is needed to plant these seedlings.

Meet at the PVC Barn at 4609 Pleasant Valley Road. Hours are from 10 AM until 4 PM. Bring your lunch. Drinks and desert will be provided.

For information, call Kathie at 608-238-5050.
