Milkweed Volunteer Training
Abingdon, MD 21009 United States + Google Map
This event is organized by: OPCA
Monarch butterflies need our help! This threatened species depends on milkweed as its host plant and unfortunately, it’s in short supply. We want to help, so we’ve created our first milkweed growing volunteer team! This position will include tending to the seedlings a few times a month in April and May, assisting with plantings in the park in June, and assisting with the milkweed booth at the Wade In Festival on Saturday, June 4 from 1 to 4 pm. At the training, we will discuss everything you need to know and plant our milkweed seeds.
