Monarch Butterfly Way-station at Camp Birch

Camp Birch has a student Master Gardener working on establishing a monarch butterfly way-station at camp. This butterfly garden will be behind the Turner Building. The benefits of having this are many. First, we will be helping to save the Monarch butterfly, whose numbers have declined rapidly in recent years. The garden will also be of benefit to all native pollinators. It will be a place where some items of ranks/badges could be earned. It is an opportunity for performing conservation projects.

Robin Houch, the lady behind the project has asked for donations of certain flowers from other peoples gardens - black eyed Susans, purple cone flowers, asters, Joe Pye weed, bee balm, yarrow, mallow and milkweed. Robin works strictly by donations. Please help this lady, and in turn, help Camp Birch.
