  • Thank you for such a warm and convivial reminiscence of Elane Nuehring at Long Key Nature Center last Sunday.

  • My daughter met someone today at your booth in Pompano. I understand you are interested in how many monarchs I have released recently. I would say about 12 since New Years 2017. I currently have about 5-6 monarch catterpillars on my milkweed plants and a bunch of eggs. I would gladly communicate with someone to keep these numbers available on an ongoing basis. Plerase email me who to send the information to. If you have a newsletter, please add my name and email. I will try to come to one of your meetings.
