Creating Habitat for Butterflies
March 24, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
This presentation will cover the habitat elements necessary for the survival of butterflies from egg to adult. The important ecological role that our native plants and butterflies play in food webs will be highlighted.
This webinar will be presented by Debra Carman – Penn State Master Gardener in York County, Native Plant Habitat Team Committee Chair, Butterfly and Moth Habitat Specialist.
Deb’s mission is to inspire others to make positive environmental changes in their gardening practices. Butterflies are excellent examples to show the complex connections between wild creatures and native plants. Through the natural attraction which people feel for butterflies, Deb teaches the importance of creating environmentally friendly habitats with native plants that foster food webs for all wildlife.
Multiple species of butterflies commonly occurring in Pennsylvania will be profiled. A special topic that we will cover includes the specific larval host plants essential for each species. Deb’s informational sheet “Butterfly Larval Host Plant List” will be sent to all participants.
This webinar is presented in partnership with the following organizations: Community Conservation Committee, Penn State Extension York County, and Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay.
