So many of my favorites come with fall. Cooler weather, fire pit nights with neighbors, college football, apples, pumpkins, leaves that change color, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Monarchs. Fall, for so many reasons, is my favorite time of the year. What has made it even more fun for me is the annual Monarch Migration to Mexico. Here in Olathe, Kansas, the peak of this migration hits around the middle of September. We’re so excited to see some Monarchs!!!
To celebrate, and educate, about this amazing Monarach migration phenomenon, the Pollinator Prairie in Olathe (320 S Black St. Olathe, KS 66061) will be hosting their annual “Hasta Luego Monarchs” event on Saturday, September 22nd from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. This free event is great for kids of all ages!!! This year, Parsons’ Gardens will be partnering with the Pollinator Prairie to host a Native Plant Fundraiser Sale. We’ll be set up from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. / or until sold out, and for each plant sold, we’ll donate $2.50 to support the Pollinator Prairie!!! For more info, check out the flyers below. Looking forward to a great event! – Jay Parsons
