A wonderful article, "Iconic Insect," was written in the Brattleboro Reformer on Thursday, Sept. 3, 2015 on the front page!
The article highlights the work of Janice Pereira, one our members. She says,"Everyone can help save monarch butterflies". There is a great photo of Janice with her husband, Tom, and their grandsons, Riley and Tye, observing a monarch butterfly emerging from its cocoon. There are additional photos related to the monarch butterfly.
The article explains that in June, Janice and her neighbors met at the back deck of Vermont Woods studios and shared milkweed seeds and plants. It goes on to explain the relationship between milkweed plants and monarch butterfiies. It is an excellent article and I hope you find the time to read it.
I think it is a great project for the garden club to pursue.
