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.
