The Monarch Waystation is located in the kinder-garden area at the back of the school. A Monarch Waystation is simply a garden that has both milkweed plants which Monarchs feed on as caterpillars, and nectar plants that they feed on as adults.

As the leaves start to fall, and you start to bag them up, please consider bringing them to the garden area to provide winter mulch for the beds.  These will be used for both the waystation and kinder-garden.  We ask that the leaves be chopped and bagged, the whole leaves do not decompose quickly enough and can cause mildew problems in the spring. Chopped leaves are very beneficial to the soil, and their covering protects the roots of the perennial plants from the harsh winter cold.  Please check out the attached flyer for how to make leaf mulch.

Please contact Gwen Meehan if you are interested in volunteering with the waystation garden.
