Our school has launched a new project called “Project Monarch!”
This is a wonderful learning and life enriching opportunity for everyone.
- Gardens specifically designed to attract and feed butterflies were installed by master gardeners who adopted the school, helped with the initial garden installation, and gave us tips on growing plants.
- Master naturalists helped the students grow the milkweed plants and raise Monarch caterpillars.
- When the Monarch butterflies are released into the garden, each one is tagged as part of the University of Kansas Monarch Watch tagging program. The students are studying about the Monarch migration.
