Milkweed for Monarchs

Caterpillar on Asclepias tuberosa

Without native milkweed plants, monarch butterflies cannot survive and reproduce. Renée Kemmerer, Mt. Cuba Center Horticulturist, opens a window into the world of milkweeds, presenting many of our native species and related plants that help to create a beneficial butterfly environment. A walk through our meadow and surrounding gardens will highlight milkweeds that thrive locally.

This program takes place in-person (at Mt. Cuba Center) Wednesday, June 29 (Rain Date: Wednesday, July 6)
