Monarch butterflies are 100% dependant upon milkweed to support their young. They feed and breed in Georgia on the northbound migration as well as the return trip to Mexico in the fall. You can find the caterpillars on the underside of the milkweed leaves. Look closely as some may still be very small and hard to see.
You can catch a glimpse of the Gulf Fritillary caterpillars in the native plant bed now. They look fierce but will not hurt you. They eat Passionflower foliage exclusively.
Registration is now open for our Fall Make and Take Programs. Space is limited for each program and they do fill up! Click Here for Registration Forms.
