Butterflies as Bioindicators:

If your butterflies could speak.



Monarchs, Black Swallowtails and Cabbage Whites each have a story to tell.  What might your butterflies tell you?  Learn how to provide a habitat where butterflies abound and birds come to feast on the bounty.  Explore the idea of reading habitats to interpret their corresponding lepidopteron species. Butterflies can tell us a lot about the environment which surrounds us!
