This June, the US Fish and Wildlife Service will decide if the Monarch Butterfly will be placed on the endangered or threatened species list. No matter the outcome we will all still need to work to protect these important pollinators. Joining us to discuss the importance of the Monarch Butterfly and how we can help them by the plants we put in our landscape is the Plant Doctor Melinda Myers!
