The Project

Project Title Designing a Monarch Butterfly Garden
Insects To Study Insects we collect will be in the area of the garden.
Project Description We plan to design a beautiful butterfly garden that will attract the migrating Monarch butterfly. To creat the wildflower garder, we need to know the types of insects that are now living in the present landscape. We do not want to disturb any helpful insects and at the same time want to be sure that these insects will contribute to our natural setting. Presently, we are establishing our property lines, physical setting, financial limitations, and hopefully avoid costly mistakes. The garden will be completed in stages over several months. The garden will need to be updated with plants that grow well in our climate and are native to our area. Morning doves, black birds, and hummingbirds do visit the gardens in our surrounding areas. In the future, it would be nice to cataloge the animals by taking photos of them as they enter the garden. This could be done with a motion sensor camera and we would probably be very surprised by the wild life that visits our garden. Please consider Blocker once again for Bugscope. Thank you, Judy Lee And Students
