The Hands That Hold the Future

Monarch Butterfly Workshop at Nature Camp in Hinesburg, Vermont
Eileen Ashe invited me to teach about monarchs at Nature Camp, sponsored by the United Church of Hinesburg, VT last week. Students made seed balls out of potting soil, clay and water.  We put milkweed and flower seeds in each ball and rolled them into sunny meadows where they’ll grow to produce habitat & food for monarchs next year.

Monarchs Rebounding | 2017 | Vermont Woods Studios
We’ve seen dozens of monarchs this year at our Stonehurst showroom in Vernon, Vermont.  It’s exciting because last year we saw only a handful. On this World Nature Conservation Day it’s nice to report that things are on the upswing.

It’s Working!

Nature nuts and monarch lovers: your hard work of planting milkweed & nectar flowers is paying off.  Butterfly populations seem to be bouncing back this year after decades of decline.  It’s too soon to declare victory but many encouraging signs are out there.  We’ll have to wait for the official reports from Monarch Joint Venture but I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
