Northern Forest might not be the first place that comes to mind when you think about monarchs, but check out how managing the habitat helps myriad species from birds to butterflies.

Hopefully, you remember Katie Banks Hone, the homeowner from Massachusetts that gave us a tutorial on how to grow monarchs last year. She’s back! This year, she led a program at Parker River National Wildlife Refuge about monarchs and she tells us about tagging the butterflies and the information the tags provide.

Despite the unfortunate weather yesterday along some of the north Atlantic coast, I still managed to enjoy Earth Day outside, spreading the word about monarch butterflies and other pollinators with my coworkers. We were out at Citizens Bank Park with the Phillies and we got great support from the fans!
