North Carolina Native Plant Society Monthly Meeting, 8/9
Our program this month will be “Gardening for Butterflies” and will be
presented by Dr. Annkatrin Rose, Associate Professor of Biology at ASU.
Annkatrin has established a thriving butterfly habitat in her backyard,

Association (NABA) and as a Monarch Waystation with Monarch Watch. Over
the last couple of years, she has raised monarch caterpillars for

support our butterflies living in the High Country.
