Hoy Meeting: Syrup and Butterflies—Spring is Right Around the Corner!

March 2, 2023 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Spring is quickly approaching and there are many sure signs on the horizon, including maple syrup season and the migration of the monarch butterfly! Just in time for maple syrup season in March, River Bend’s very own naturalist Christa Trushinsky will discuss the history and science behind the production of maple syrup as well as the importance of native trees on the landscape. The end of the syrup season brings many migrants back into Wisconsin and the Monarch Butterfly is certainly one of them! Learn more about the ecology and conservation of the monarch butterfly and how you can become a monarch-savvy gardener! Christa will also highlight tips and tricks for rearing monarchs in an effort to save their species!

If you are unable to attend the program in-person, please join the program virtually, beginning at 7:00 PM.
