Dr. Marc Minno Workshop


OCTOBER 13, 2012   8:00AM - 12:00AM

Butterfly interest starts early.

Have you ever wondered why your gardens are not full of beautiful butterflies and pollinators?

Dr. Marc Minno, the author of many butterfly books, including Butterfly Gardening in Florida, will answer that very question and more in his upcoming workshop to be held at B.B.Brown's Gardens at the Florida Scrub-Jay Trail in Clermont, FL.

This workshop will begin inside with butterfly biology and ecology featuring Marc's beautiful field photography. Marc will then lead the group outside to the pollinator gardens and Monarch Waystation to identify butterflies and caterpillars, and will discuss how to attract butterflies to your property.

You will participate in tagging and releasing Monarchs, as well as other butterflies in the garden. Learn how to rear and monitor butterflies as well as learn which key species of plants are "must haves" if you want these pollinators to thrive in your habitat.

Receive the extra bonus of learning how your butterfly garden can earn certification from National Wildlife Federation as a Certified Wildlife Habitat.

Marc is an ecologist with the consulting firm Eco-Cognizant, Inc. and is a research associate with the McGuire Center at the Florida Museum of Natural History in Gainesville, which contains the largest butterfly and moth research facility in the world.

Upon completion, enjoy time with Marc as he autographs his books and signs his quick identification guides which will be available for sale.
