The Waterloo Garden Club invites the community to join them on April 17th for a program on creating a garden sanctuary for birds, butterflies and bees, with a focus on preservation of Monarch Butterflies. Our guest speaker is Saint Louis Audubon Society Executive Director Mitch Leachman. Mitch’s program, Build Your Own Bird Sanctuary, will discuss how to create a bird sanctuary of your own. Highlights include discussion of how to use native plants to create a bird habitat in your yard, what plants are especially attractive to birds and what bird species we can expect to see in Saint Louis. Information will be provided about the Saint Louis Audubon “Bring Conservation Home” program to help you on this project.
Additional speakers will be updating the Monarch Conservancy program as well as additional discussion on the parallels of pollinator gardens for birds, bees and butterflies. Milkweed seed with be distributed along with guidelines on how to create a Monarch Habitat.
