Join the Rye Garden Club to help save the monarch butterfly from extinction. Over the past five years ninety percent of monarch butterflies have died off, mostly because their habitat has been destroyed. Children and parents will learn about native milkweed, the only food monarch butterflies eat, and plant seeds to sprout. In June, bring the seedlings back for a planting day in the Children's Room Garden. Then welcome the butterflies!
