Our distinguished speaker will be Dr. Chip Taylor, the founder and director of Monarch Watch, giving a presentation on our number one most requested topic for TAP: 


Growing Milkweed for Monarch Conservation


As milkweed, the sole host plant for monarch butterflies, has diminished across the landscape, so have population numbers for the iconic butterfly.  A broad scale effort involving many partners is needed to restore this habitat across North America to support monarchs and other wildlife.  A key step in this process is increasing the availability of native milkweed plant materials, including seeds and plugs. In this webinar you will learn about regional native milkweed plant material needs, seed collection, processing, storage, stratification, germination, transplantation to plug cell, growing out, control of pests with biological control methods, site preparation, planting, watering and monitoring to determine survival rates.  From backyard gardeners to large scale native plant producers, everyone has a role to play in supporting monarch habitat across North America. 


The presentation will begin 11:00 am and conclude at 12:00. Click HERE to register.
