Reminder: Our September Meeting
The next meeting of our Southeast Chapter will begin promptly at 7 p.m. Monday, September 21, 2015, in room C-134 at Stockton University.
"Milkweeds for Monarchs" a program & book signing by Pat Sutton. Monarch butterflies make the most amazing migration of any insect in the world. Join Pat to learn all about their life cycle and journey from Mexico to the U.S. and Canada, and back to Mexico for the winter months. Their future depends on healthy milkweed stands here in the U.S. where their numbers multiply (spring through fall). There are many different and beautiful native milkweeds that you can plant in your own garden or in community gardens to help create a path of milkweed from Mexico to Canada that will benefit monarchs. Plant it and they will come! Don't plant it and someday they may not come.
Pat Sutton has studied the natural world for over 30 years, as the naturalist at the Cape May Point State Park in the 1970s and 1980s and then for 21 years as the naturalist and program director at the Cape May Bird Observatory. Today Pat is a free-lance writer, photographer, educator, lecturer, tour leader, and wildlife garden consultant. For more information go to Pat and Clay's website: www.patandclaysutton.com
