Monarch Butterfly Program
Eggs are harvested in July and grown to approximately 1" long larva. At this stage, they are packaged in individual containers and sent to OC schools along with resource materials to teach the Monarch lifecycle and metamorphosis.
Teachers and home school parents interested in participating in the program can sign-up by calling our office at 222-5123. Spots fill up fast so get your name on the list!
Mid-September be on the lookout for the monarchs as they migrate back through Oldham County on their way to Mexico. It's a truly a sight to see!
