WPP is participating in Mission Monarch. As in previous years, we’ll be following up on the training workshop (July 27 at the Fletcher Wildlife Garden) with field trips to the milkweed fields south of Ottawa International Airport (July 28) and the 3 species of milkweeds at the FWG to look for caterpillars and eggs.

Please meet at the Fletcher Wildlife Garden promptly at 1 pm. We’ll be surveying the whole garden for about an hour, then tallying the data to submit to Mission Monarch.

Anyone interested in pollinator surveys is also welcome to come along to see what bees, wasps, flower flies, and other pollinators can be found in a field of milkweeds.
