NJ Native Plant Society Fall Meeting, Nov 7, 2015

This looks to be good. I especially look forward to the discussion on other insects as I have had so many in my new pollinator garden. Also this is a great chance to see Douglas Tallamy, author of "Bringing Nature Home." Join the society and receive a discount on the fee. I have been to several of these meetings. They do not disappoint. I look forward to going as well.

Milkweed for Monarchs at September Meeting of NJ Native Plant Society Southeast

Come on out to see Pat Sutton, a great and accomplished expert. There will be a book singing as well. I know Pat and she is very dedicated to helping the Monarchs out. You won't want to miss this.

Our September Meeting
The Southeast Chapter of the Native Plant Society of New Jersey

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:
