Participants at the event will help the recovery by assisting in milkweed seed collection, so they can be planted in areas around Carlyle Lake to help with the monarch’s survival. Milkweed provides monarchs with food, cover and host plants to lay their eggs. Other activities include: monarch crafts, games, photo opportunities, and a monarch program presented by the Butterfly House at 1:30 p.m. Volunteers who assist with seed collection will be given a packet of milkweed seeds to take home to plant.
