Monarch Visitors

If you aren't able to fill your calendars with TLC events every weekend--though we do our best to give you a selection, I would recommend taking at least one weekend from September 1st through October 31 to visit Cape May, New Jersey.  At the Audubon Cape May Bird Observatory you can observe the spectacle that is the migrating monarch's as they make their way 2000+ miles south to overwinter.

This monarch was found spending some time in the meadow at Bucktoe Creek Preserve.  Though I was not able to capture it in the photograph, this monarch was spending a fair amount of time on the Asclepias syriaca (Common Milkweed)--- a great native plant and host plant! Learn more about what native plants you can purchase at TLC's booth at terrain on Saturday, August 17th or learn about what plants you can forage at Bucktoe Creek Preserve on our Wild Foraging Walk also this Saturday, August 17th.
