We've had a very productive weekend! Our head Garden Coordinator from last year, Briana, was here and tagged along on a milkweed hunt. After following the waterfront trails and crossing the walking bridge, we've discovered that there is common milkweed everywhere! We also came across Dogbane, a very similar plant that is not useful to the monarch, and we took some pictures of that as well. We've taken a bunch of pictures so that you can have a look as well if you're out and about for Canada Day!
