The garden became a Monarch Waystation in 2013. A Waystation provides the habitat to support each phase of the monarch butterfly life cycle. Most important is a variety of milkweeds for the larval stage. This year we added more butterfly friendly perennials to expand their habitat. The perennials were planted as part of a boyscout's Eagle Scout project.
