Milkweeds and Dogbanes

Milkweeds (Asclepias) are some of the most attractive and fragrant wildflowers, and are magnets for butterflies and pollinators. Learn about their special relationship with monarch butterflies, complex flower structure, ingenious pollination strategy, and protective chemical arsenal. This class will help you identify the common and rare species and recognize their surprising range of habitats. You will also learn tips for milkweed cultivation and discuss the dangers that threaten this native plant.

Please note: We do not make video or audio recordings of classes or programs available after the fact, because we believe education is interactive, with instructors and students building a community and culture of learning. Some programs may be recorded strictly for instructor-training purposes.
