This workshop will focus on the relationship between the Monarch butterfly and milkweed. Monarchs depend on this flowering plant to survive because their caterpillars can only feed on milkweed leaves. Milkweed is native to North America, which Monarchs migrate through to complete their life cycle. During this workshop, we will create a drawing of the Monarch butterfly interacting with its host plant and learn a little bit about how we can help this endangered species.
