Program Manager Jackie Sherry from the Dunwoody Nature Center has been meeting with first-grade students for the past two weeks to talk about Monarch butterflies and their disappearing habitat.

Last spring, DNC donated milkweed plants and a butterfly garden to Dunwoody Elementary School and other Dunwoody schools to help promote the Monarch’s North American migration.

The goal is to harvest the seeds from their butterfly garden and grow more milkweed that students can take home and plant in their own gardens, the school said in a press release.

One reply on “Dunwoody Elementary School takes next step in its butterfly project”

  1. Dear Dunwoody Elementary School: This is great news!! I remember what a thrill it was to have your school declared a National Wildlife Federation Habitat and to help build your Nature Trail!! Your Dunwoody Mayor Mike Davis referred me on to Mayor elect Denis Shortal to promote the Mayors’ Monarch Pledge, a program also designed to help the Monarch Butterfly!! Please let us know what the National Wildlife Federation can do to help!!–Tom Reilly
