Join Tom Terrific as he shows you what you need to do to not only attract Monarch butterflies, but keep them coming back to your garden.

While the Monarch butterfly population has decreased dramatically, the question that Tom Terrific tries to answer is, “What can I do to help the Monarch butterfly population rebound?”

Tom will discuss the causes of the Monarch decline and what host and nectar plants we can grow to attract and keep Monarchs in our garden. He will also talk about pests, diseases and which varieties of milkweed do best in our urban gardens.

Let’s make St. Louis a Monarch Paradise!
