Short Description of Activity

Maintaining nascent Monarch Waystation and mitigating problems of extreme heat and invasion from synanthropic Burros.


The heat and munching critters have delayed some success. The learning curve is steep. However, the future of this project looks doable and bright!
Six new gardens are being planned but will not be planted until cooler weather.
Interest in the project is growing in the local community.
