Monarch Watch has a 9 year old fan

It’s always nice to hear about how Monarch Watch touches people’s lives…

Just thought I’d let you know how much Monarch Watch has influenced my 9 year old daughter. We’ve enjoyed visiting your tent at the Powell Garden’s Butterfly Festival for several years now. Last month, my daughter Zoe chose to participate in a local Science Expo and made her display on monarchs.

She even passed out fliers she made that said “Take Some Seeds Plant Some Milkweed” and included a small packet of seeds with each one. She was really proud that her display and fliers were very popular. This year she plans to make our butterfly garden an official Monarch Waystation.

Thanks for doing such a great job educating the public about monarchs. You’ve helped foster a love of science as well as gardening in my child. And I have no doubt that she’ll continue to be a monarch advocate throughout her life.

That’s a great display Zoe – we (and the monarchs) thank you for your continued support!

    You go, Zoe! I started raising Monarchs after visiting Powell Gardens Butterfly Expo two years ago and brought home 2 little babies from there. Since then, I’ve been hooked! It’s a very interesting and exciting hobby! I wish I learned about it when I was 9. Have fun!
