Today’s Speaker
Kelly Srigley Werner- Fish & Wildlife – Monarch Butterfly program
Kelly was joined by intern Victoria Burnett today as we learned about the challenges of the Monarch Butterfly population. The population of Monarchs is just 10% of what is was just a few years ago. While many factors are contributing to the decline, lack of proper habitat and food sources is a huge problem. In the last two years a large group of organizations, agencies and individuals have come together to work to improve habitat and food for the butterflies. We learned that milkweed is an absolutely critical need for Monarchs. In MO there are 4 varieties of milkweed that are native here and these are the varieties that we are encouraged to plant to support butterfly restoration.
