Making Rest Stops For Butterflies

We're so excited about bees of late, that three cities in the Rogue Valley have received "Bee City" designations.  Can the butterflies get a little love here?

Indeed they can, and do, from the people of Southern Oregon Monarch Advocates

These friends of the monarch butterfly are in the process of creating "monarch waystations," places where a weary monarch might like to stop for a rest and a meal. 

Three of the group members visit to tell us about their efforts.
