Monarch Waystation Planting, November 15

Grab your gloves and join us on Saturday, November 15 from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. and help us build a home for the monarchs! 

You’ve probably heard that monarch populations have been on the decline due to significant habitat loss. Specifically, they are losing their larval food source, milkweed, which grows in many of the areas that we humans desire for development. Monarch caterpillars eat only milkeed, and monarch butterflies only lay their eggs on milkweed. So... no milkweed means no monarchs!

Artist finds joy in updating mural

Look closely at the picture of Georgia Roark (right) taken during a recent visit to Mead Garden. Behind her you will see a lush landscape alive with wildlife, birds, trees, flowers and trails to explore. That beautiful scene is actually Georgia’s own work of art — a Mead Garden-inspired mural that adorns an outside wall of the Little Environmental building. Georgia, a well-known Winter Park artist, first painted the 40-foot long landscape several years ago.
