Event Details

Can the Monarch Butterfly be Saved from Extinction?

Speaker: Suzanne Clarke

Critically Low Monarch Population in California

The California overwintering population has been reduced to less than 0.5% of its historical size, and has declined by 86% compared to 2017.

These valuable pollinators need help from home gardeners.

Suzanne Clarke, a Sonoma County Master Gardener, will cover basic anatomy of both the caterpillar and butterfly stages, their life cycle, diet, and distribution east and west of the Rockies. She will explain what the home gardener can do to help their survival. Suzanne will also describe how to make a caterpillar to butterfly cage where you can watch the growth and metamorphosis yourself.

Location: Central Santa Rosa Library, 211 E Street, Santa Rosa
