The Summer issue of Butterfly Gardener magazine will be mailed to NABA members starting this week. The contents include:
Walmart To Kill (About To Be) Federally Endangered Bartram’s Scrub-Hairstreaks
Paving paradise to put up a parking lot? Perhaps so in Miami-Dade County, Florida. Globally imperilled habitat currently home to at least two rare butterflies, Bartram’s Scrub-Hairstreak, which is expected to be named to the endangered species list this summer, and the Atala, which almost went extinct in the middle of the 20th century, might soon become home to Walmart.
Here is a group of high school students in Waverly, Iowa who are helping Monarch populations. They have created a nice website with information that is appropriate to share with schools.
In addition to educating through their website, they have been raising funds for various butterfly conservation organizations.
