Monarch butterfly populations have plummeted at an alarming rate. Oklahoma is centrally located in the Monarch migration flyway, which means our community has a responsibility to help avoid extinction. Join us to learn how you can take simple steps to create a backyard Monarch waystation, avoid pesticide use, and get involved in Oklahoma's statewide pledge to help Monarchs and other pollinators. Attendees will walk away with milkweed to create or add to their own pollinator garden!
