Registration Fee for How to Help Monarchs Class - 2022
Next up in Nature Niche Summer School, longtime citizen scientist and monarch butterfly enthusiast, Denny Brooks, is teaching a one-hour class about what we can do to help save monarchs! Learn the basics of the monarch's life cycle, migration, and how to provide quality habitat in your own landscape. Denny will discuss key larval host and adult nectar plant species, best management practices for butterfly-friendly landscape care, and citizen science monitoring and reporting. Many of the monarch-supporting plants discussed will be available at Nature Niche's Growing Season Finale native plant sale from August 26 through September 3, 2022.
The class will occur at our retail location at 2004 W. Wackerly St. Midland, MI from 6-7pm--choose either Tuesday August 9th or 16th. Approximately 45-50 minutes will be dedicated to his presentation, followed by a general Q&A session.
Denny Brooks has over two decades of experience contributing to multiple monarch-focused citizen science programs, including Monarch Watch (University of Kansas monarch tagging program), Monarch Larva Monitoring Project, and Journey North, with countless hours spent monitoring, weighing, and testing monarchs for parasites in the field for the Universities of Kansas, Minnesota, and Georgia. He is an amazing, multi-faceted naturalist who loves sharing his knowledge with adults and children both in the classroom and hands-on in the field. Following his first retirement, Denny spent many years conducting various environmental education programs for the Michigan Department of Natural Resources at Bay City State Park. He loves nature photography and helping others better understand the natural world around them.
