Please join Robin Will, St. Marks NWR Supervisory Ranger, and Ranger Scott Davis for an update of current activities at St. Mark NWR and learn about an exciting new initiative to help bring back the native milkweeds that Monarch butterflies depend upon for survival.

Robin and Scott will give a presentation about the “Bring Back the Monarchs” project, which will help propagate and make critically needed native milkweed available to benefit butterflies in the St. Marks NWR Apalachee Audubon Monarch-Pollinator Garden at Picnic Pond and butterflies and gardens throughout the region.

St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge with over 70,000 acres along the coast of Apalachee Bay protects a vital link in habitat and migrations that span a hemisphere.
