Presentation

Monarchs

A Monarch butterfly begins as a tiny egg and ends up spending the winter in Mexico! The amazing story of how these beautiful insects reproduce; what monarchs eat and how you can help by planting the foods they love in your yard. These winged jewels are threated and need our help to survive. This is the incredible tale of Monarch Migration and their life. Colletta becomes the monarch and relates experiences you have never heard before.
