Earth Day Celebration

  • ACI 629 Amboy Avenue Edison, NJ, 08837 United States (map)

Come and join us for a pre-Earth Day celebration! In an effort to increase the population of the Monarch butterfly, you will be planting your own milkweed. The milkweed plant provides the nourishment the Monarch needs to transform from a caterpillar into a adult butterfly. The plants are rapidly disappearing due to the widespread spraying of weed killer on the fields where they grow.
 
Afterwards, we will watch a documentary on the migration of these amazing butterflies. You will also be given packets of milkweed seeds to hand out to your friends.

Light snacks will be provided.
