Monarchs are flying through Loudoun! They are laying eggs and caterpillars are growing! If you plant milkweed and native nectar plants in your garden you may attract them. You can just enjoy them but it’s also really fun to raise and release them through the summer too! Check out this video on how you can raise Monarchs and experience the magic!
Note: The key to success is having enough milkweed for caterpillars to eat (they eat a lot) – 10 healthy plants is a great number
