Package seed packets to promote milkweed plant growth (one of butterflies’ favorite plants) with a Bridge Student who is passionate about helping the butterfly population flourish. Learn more about various species of butterflies with our friends at University of Illinois Extension, including the monarch butterfly, which is known around the world for the challenging and impressive migration that it makes every year from North America to Mexico, but in recent years less and less butterflies have been returning. This population is in danger due to various reasons – from agro-industrial chemicals to changes in weather. The good news is that you can help! See what steps you can take to help the monarch butterfly population in your own backyard.
Educational Support programs this summer are sponsored by Huntington Learning Center.
