Presented by the Fayetteville Monarch Project
Saturday, March 25
9 am – 12 pm
but space is limited and registration is required
The Botanical Garden of the Ozarks has partnered with the Fayetteville Monarch Project to put on this educational workshop on Monarch Butterflies.
The Botanical Garden of the Ozarks opened Arkansas’s first and only Butterfly House in Fall of 2011. Since then we have been striving to education the public about the importance of butterflies as pollinators and how to help save butterflies like the monarch. We offer adult classes on the subject as well as field trips to thousands of students throughout the year.
Fayetteville’s mayor, Lioneld Jordan, took the National Wildlife Federation’s Mayors’ Monarch Pledge in November 2015. Since then the Fayetteville Monarch Project formed and has been working to create habitats and educate citizens on ways they can make a difference to help save the monarch butterfly. Fayetteville Monarch Project’s mission is “To conserve and create monarch habitat in Northwest Arkansas.”
So naturally, the two groups have united and want to bring this workshop to local citizens free of charge!
Topics that will be covered include:
-Botanical Garden of the Ozarks and Fayetteville Monarch Project Overview
-Monarch Life Cycle and Conservation
-Monarch Gardens: Plants and Design
-Tour of BGO Butterfly Gardens and Butterfly House
