About us

It's interesting how one event can change the way you view your world and think about things.
Our catalyst occurred in early autumn several years ago when a friend stopped by to harvest some milkweed from our field. I was surprised to discover she had a dedicated monarch garden in her small back yard and had been “rescuing” and raising monarch caterpillars for years!  From that day on, I have dedicated myself to learning the life cycle of the monarch butterfly – observing each stage from egg to adult butterfly in my own gardens. What began as a rescue mission that  autumn has grown into a passion for education, conservation, and a love of these amazing creatures.
