On the 12th of May I will be part of the Pollinator Live webcast at the National Zoo. I will provide more details on how to connect with this broadcast in the near future but you can get some details from the Pollinator Live website.
My role will be to talk about monarchs and to take everyone to “butterfly school” much as I do when we have our tagging day at the Baker Wetlands in Lawrence each September. However, we will touch on other pollinators as well and at some point while trying to explain insect vision you may see me pretend to be a praying mantis.
But, the real point of this communication is to tell you that Kristy Liercke, one of the organizers of this event, wanted me tell you that there are small grants available for people who wish to start Monarch Waystations / pollinator gardens at schools.
The maximum grant amount is $500 and the deadline to apply is December 3, 2010.
In her words she asked me to
“spread the word that the project has grant money for gardens. So if you have people needing a little money to start Monarch Waystations, please have them apply.”
