The Bel Air FIVE Kick-Off Event and Native Plant Sale on Wed, Sept 8 went very well! Now, join the whole town of Bel Air by planting native plants, especially the host and pollinator plants for the 4 butterflies and a moth we’re trying to protect. Fall is a great time to plant! Then, download the iNaturalist app so you can identify the butterflies and caterpillars that come to your garden or planter. Insects and plants identified upload automatically to the Maryland Biodiversity Project, so we can see the impact of our efforts. Thank-you for caring about wildlife! (Insect/Host Plant: 1) Monarch/Milkweed or Butterfly weed; 2) Silvery Checkerspot/Ten-Petal Sunflower; 3) Pipevine Swallowtail/Virginia Snakeroot; 4) Great Spangled Fritillary/Arrow-leaved Violet, Common Blue Violet, etc.; 5) Unicorn Caterpillar Moth/New Jersey Tea Plant or Hawthorn Trees.
