All the Wild for Monarchs materials arrived fine and thanks for the neat thumb-drive too!  I already updated the two files on it per the errata sheet in case I come across anyone who wants to do a download of the material on it. We already applied one of the bumper stickers to my wife’s car more »

Charlene Breitlow did a fantastic job talking about monarchs with attendees at our recent chapter plant sale.  I was really surprised to learn how much she has done for how many  years.  I’m hoping we can tap into that experience (both for our chapter and for national).  She does a kid’s class during the summer at the local community more »
