iDig2Learn hosts a free Monarch Butterfly Corridor planting on Roosevelt Island this SAT July 18th from 11 AM to 3 PM Rain or shine.  Meet at RI Community garden main gate at 11 AM.
In partnership with RIOC, RIGC, RIHS, RIYP and the Girl Scouts, iDig2Learn will host a planting of the milkweed plant that monarch butterflies, which have suffered a severe loss of habitat, heavily depend upon.  These destinations will serve as a flight corridor for monarch butterflies on their migrations south to warmer weather every fall.
Thanks to generous grants provided by Citizens Committee for NYC, City Gardens Club of NYC and Grow to Learn NYC, and fiscal sponsors 217PTA and RI Youth Program, this event is free.
Please join us as we form a managed milkweed haven together and restore wildlife micro-habitats here on Roosevelt Island.
