Build a Monarch Butterfly Rearing Box

Monarch Rearing Box

Raising monarch butterflies from egg or larva to emerging adult is one of the most instructive things you can do with kids or for yourself. And it’s so much fun to watch the day-to-day changes. Finally, releasing this fragile insect to the wide, wild world is a thrill. And every healthy adult we release helps sustain an increasingly threatened population.

All you need is a monarch rearing box and lots of milkweed! Jeff Sytsma and Melissa Warner will help you build your own box and stock it with milkweed. And we’ll do our best to find eggs and larvae to put inside. We’ll learn some amazing things about this lepidopteran and why its populations are threatened.

Join us on June 14 about 2:00 pm at the Warner home, 4444 N. Green Bay Rd., Caledonia. Phone 639-0918 or email melissa.warner3@sbcglobal.net for reservations and directions. $15 covers materials and helps our monarch habitat projects. Space is limited, so reserve early.
