Join us at the West Sixth Farm in the midst of the monarch butterfly’s migration through Kentucky! This presentation will discuss and demonstrate monarch waystations. Come and learn how to create your own butterfly garden to help conserve this remarkable species. Guests will have the opportunity to learn about and get involved in monarch tagging, a tool used to study the annual migration. Join Michaela Rogers, Environmental Scientist with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources for this family-friendly event. Michaela works to implement the goals of the Kentucky Monarch Conservation Plan in our state and educates others on issues surrounding the butterfly’s decline.
