Children Programs

All Ages
Instructed by: Sag Moraine

Our iconic monarch butterfly is on the endangered species list and on the road to extinction. How tragic it would be to lose this amazing creature that performs one of the greatest mass migrations on earth! Unfortunately, monarch populations are down almost 90 percent in recent decades. Fortunately, there may still be time to save the monarch. Sag Moraine will discuss in this presentation ways we can all help the monarch where we live and work. Whether you have ten acres of property or a 10-foot patio, you can help! This program will be presented virtually through Zoom. Once you register, a Zoom link for the presentation will be emailed to you.
