Next Meeting - Thursday, June 14, 2018
by Leaside Garden Society
Join us on June 14 when Carol Pasternak will show you How to Bring Butterflies to Your Garden.
Carol Pasternak, also known as the Monarch Crusader, is a highly acclaimed monarch enthusiast, author, teacher, and photographer. Her expertise includes raising common butterflies and moths, and how to bring them to your garden. Her efforts to "save the world for butterflies" start with advocating for the planting of butterfly gardens everywhere, all the way to providing employment for poor people in Mexico, so that they are not driven by economic need to cut the forests the monarchs rely on over the winter.
Carol's book, How to Raise Monarch Butterflies, A Step-by-Step Guide for Kids, is loved by adults and kids alike. It is virtually the textbook for all who love monarchs, or who want to raise them, with 25,000 copies sold. Information about the book can be found on her website (monarchcrusader.com).
Come and join us at the Leaside Library, 165 McRae Drive, on the evening of Thursday, June 14, 2018. Refreshments are available prior to the meeting, which begins at 7:30 p.m.
