Where have all the monarchs gone?  Recent population trends and data on the Monarch Butterfly will be shared, as well as the good habitat work going on throughout Marin, especially Ole Schell’s West Marin Monarch Sanctuary.  Tips for how you can help will be offered, and a few controversies will be discussed, such as the role of eucalyptus and the dangers of tropical milkweed.  Local photographers will be featured, and the work of the Marin Monarch Working Group will be a focus.
