Butterflies can add color, movement and excitement to your backyard garden. These 'winged wildflowers' are excellent pollinators and have fascinating behaviors and adaptations for survival. Learn which plants are good for attracting both adult butterflies and young caterpillars, how to identify the common species, and what you can do to help. You will also learn how to tag Monarch butterflies before they migrate to Mexico this fall.
