The Greensboro Science Center (GSC) and Piedmont Land Conservancy (PLC) are joining forces to increase monarch butterfly habitats. On Saturday October 1, GSC and PLC members are invited to the Greensboro Science Center for a day dedicated to monarch conservation. The monarch butterfly’s larva depends on milkweed as their sole source of food. Therefore, we’ll begin the day by planting milkweed to establish a dedicated milkweed garden to provide the resources needed to support successive generations of monarchs. After that, we will gather in the OmniSphere Theater to watch “Flight of the Butterflies”, a 3D film documenting the amazing monarch’s migration.
