How can you help the monarchs? Garden designer has the answers
Residents and gardeners interested in learning about the plight of the monarch butterfly , and what to do to help, can attend “How to Help the Monarch Butterflies,” with presenter and garden designer Martha Oliver, at 6:30 p.m. May 10 at the Mt. Pleasant Public Library.
Oliver, head gardener at Powdermill Nature Reserve, and co-owner of Scottdale nursery The Primrose Path , will offer three kinds of milkweed host plants for monarch butterfly larva for a $5 donation following the program, according to a news release.
The seeds of these native plants were collected locally and grown by the Southern Laurel Highlands Pest and Plant Management Partnership, which includes the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, Fallingwater, and others, the release states.
The talk is free and open to the public.
