Butterfly Hubs

About This Event

We unveil our official Monarch Waystation designation on this walking tour with Arboretum Gardener Bryan Burks who will show and tell you all about the hubs he created within the Arboretum to attract butterflies. Free with admission; members free

Monarch Waystations are places that provide resources necessary for monarchs to produce successive generations and sustain their migration. Without milkweeds throughout their spring and summer breeding areas in North America, monarchs would not be able to produce the successive generations that culminate in the migration each fall. Similarly, without nectar from flowers these fall migratory monarch butterflies would be unable to make their long journey to overwintering grounds in Mexico. The need for host plants for larvae and energy sources for adults applies to all monarch and butterfly populations around the world. Monarch Waystation logo above.
