Conrad Varblow at Potomac Falls High School sent us the wonderful news that their Monarch Waystation is in AND they plan to expand it next year! Here’s the great story of this waystation in Conrad’s words:
Thanks to all who participated, especially the Ecology Club and Dr. Peters! Thank you to our nursery and Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy sponsors and the PTSO for the funding!
We’ve finished the first round of plantings for our Monarch Waystation and will be getting it certified with appropriate signage.
We hope to double the size next year.
So far, our plans to water over the summer are working out great!
Once all of the Virginia Native plants are established they will need less supervision.
We are looking forward to our Mexico-bound Monarch visitors in the classroom this Fall.
