We will be creating a garden with native butterfly and moth host plants that will provide what native lepidopterans need to complete their life cycle. We are going beyond providing nectar sources with pollinator plants by planting host plants as a food source for caterpillars. Caterpillars are voracious and very picky eaters, eating only specific host plants. We will be planting these native plants.
A portion of this class will be in the garden, please dress appropriately for the weather.
