We are excited to announce that our pollinator field was accepted as an official Monarch Waystation!
In spring of 2015 we began a project to grow native plants in the field along Limekiln Road. This field is part of Monocacy Hill Recreation Area and is slightly over one half acre in size. There was already a nice variety of native plants growing there, but we wanted to enhance the habitat and grow plants that would be good host and food sources for pollinators. To our delight we had many insect species visiting our field this year, including Monarch butterflies, skippers, fritillaries! Thanks to our dedicated volunteers who have helped with all phases of this project.
