1. Monarch naturalist Lindsey Brendel appeared on local radio station WCFA, 101.5, on Friday morning, talking with the show hosts about the monarch migration. We love attention from journalists, whether from the press or broadcast media.
2. Twelve enthusiastic participants joined MMP Director Mark Garland for the first ever full day CMBO Monarch Butterfly workshop on Thursday.
3. On Saturday morning (9/24) we will participate in the initial planting of a new butterfly garden near Sunset Beach in the southwest corner of the Higbee Beach Wildlife Management Area. Monarch enthusiasts are invited to come and help. This garden is part of a grand landscaping plan relating to the development of the new Cape May Maritime Museum and Education Center, which will include the building of a replica 1876 lifesaving station at Sunset Beach. We're look forward to seeing migratory monarch at his garden in the future, and to including the location on our educational and research activities.

4. Our regular education programs continue, with "drop-in" programs every morning at 11 am at Cape May Point's Triangle Park through Oct. 19; tagging demos at 2 pm every Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at Cape May Point State Park, and "Tank Talks" at the CMBO Northwood Center on the next two Fridays, Sept. 30 and Oct. 7.
