Butterfly Release 2021
August 25, 2021
Our Monarch season was a successful one this year! We raised many caterpillars and released mostly female butterflies and one male. It is fun sharing their life cycle and exciting moments of release with our families and little ones.
You can help the Monarch population and try your hand at raising these beautiful creatures too! Purchase "milkweed" plants from a responsible grower who does not use pesticides or herbicides. We like This Is A Monarchy, a private home-based nursery and Monarch Waystation, "We help to create butterfly gardens, educate children and adults alike at our butterfly encounters, local schools and garden clubs. This is a Monarchy raises and sells many different varieties of host and nectar plants so you can start your own butterfly gardens at home. We are open 7 days by appointment (805-807-0635) so you can come and learn about this amazing butterfly and maybe take home a plant or two to start your own garden."
Annual Fundraiser Walk for Tender Life Maternity Home
July 10, 2021
Tender Life Maternity Home is a local organization that "provides pregnant women with safe housing and supportive services in an environment that instills dignity and promotes self-sufficiency." It helps pregnant women who are facing adverse circumstances such as homelessness grow and learn life skills and parenting skills in a safe and supportive environment. We love the positive and inspiring success stories of Tender Life graduates who have raised healthy babies and improved their lives with the loving care this program provides. Please check out the important work they are doing in our community and join in the next annual fundraising walk for Tender Life Maternity Home.
Congrats to our home team, Team Red, and reaching their fundraising goal for this year's walk!
Spring planting-Monarch Conservation
March 11, 2020
Spring is almost here and with that in mind- it is time to start planning your garden! Whether your space is big or small you can have an impact on conserving the Monarch butterfly population by planting butterfly friendly "pollinator gardens." Last year ESP integrated native plants and milkweed-also called butterfly weed-into our green spaces. You can read more about conservation efforts for the local monarch butterfly population on the California Department of Fish and Wildlife website. At the bottom of the page is a section titled "You Can Help" which provides links on how to set up your own pollinator gardens.
It was a wonderful experience watching the monarch's come and lay their eggs, and then wait for them to hatch and become growing caterpillars and then butterflies!
