Butterfly Meadow

Brooklyn Bird Club at Prospect Park.
Published by Janet Zinn13 hrs
The Butterfly Meadow volunteer corps, comprised of Brooklyn Bird Club members, had its final session of the season today. The meadow is already looking great with tons of milkweed blooming (more than I can recall in many years); asters are blooming now and attracting lots of butterflies, and ladybugs abound. Should look fantastic by August--get up there if you can to see what we've done. Let's hope all this milkweed attracts some Monarchs later in the season...
