JOIN US FOR A MONARCH FILLED DAY!
Throughout the summer, staff at The Ridges rear Monarchs, from tiny caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly. Against all odds, these butterflies will migrate all the way down to the mountains of Mexico in the winter. We help Monarchs survive by providing protected habitat in which they can breed, grow, and find food sources. Join us on Saturday, August 28th to learn more about monarchs and how we can help them!
