Description

"Meet at the Monarch Butterfly Garden at the Phil Dejana Learning Center Outdoor Classroom, and, with a little luck, we’ll observe adult Monarchs and look for signs of their life cycle: egg, caterpillar, and chrysalis. We’ll draw connections between this extraordinary species’ life story and the natural history of the Sands Point Preserve. We’ll explore the world of the Monarchs’ close relatives in the butterfly family and other groups of invertebrates, and we’ll discover the importance of native plants in the evolution of insect-host relationships."
