A Look at Butterflies & How to Create a Butterfly Garden

August 15, 2020

Butterflies! You've seen these beautiful creatures flying around and maybe even tried to catch one as a kid, but how much do you really know about them? Unlike honey bees, they're not great pollinators and they don't produce delicious food for us to eat. None the less, images of butterflies are everywhere - on cards, notebooks, mugs. They add beauty to the world and are a source of food for many animals.

In this episode, I talk with Jessica McAtee, a butterfly expert, so we can learn all about these fascinating creatures and how we can turn our yard into a butterfly garden.
