Laura Miller, a Southwest Monarch Study citizen scientist and board member, will discuss how to attract Monarchs and other butterfly species to your garden. 

The numbers of Monarch butterflies are declining due to destruction of their natural habitat and difficulties during migration. You can help by adding native plants to your landscape or by creating Monarch way stations. 

Donna DiFrancesco, City of Mesa Conservation Coordinator, will speak about the new Monarch Haven and Reading Sanctuary under construction at the Red Mountain Library.
