Overland Park Arboretum, $3 admission

Over 100 species of Milkweeds populate North America and ten of them call Eastern Kansas "home". Not only do these plants provide food and shelter for many colorful insects, including the beloved Monarch, they are botanically fascinating. Learn their reproductive strategy and why it is a miracle that they ever successfully set seed. Then meet the cast of characters who risk their lives to sip the delicious nectar. Participants will learn how to include Milkweeds in their own gardens and become certified as a Monarch Waystation.
Presented by Lenora Larson
