Workshop | Butterflies for Beginners

  • FOOD ROOF Farm 1335 Convention Plaza St. Louis, MO, 63103 United States (map)

Join our Young Friends Board president Amanda Mikolay (self titled "Butterfly Enthusiast") in learning how to identify, monitor, and care for butterflies! This class will cover the basics of butterfly rearing as well as what native plants encourage butterfly populations. The two main species of lepidoptera covered will be Monarchs and Eastern Swallowtails. Encouraging the butterfly population increases pollination and helps various plant species as well as local gardens.
