    Hi
    Do they still run this program? Other day I saw monarch butterfly in my backyard and I also see other types, unaware of their names. I have also planted variety of plants that helped humming birds,bees to visit/stayin the garden for longer periods. Humming birds and myself have lots of playful sessions in the afternoons.
    I must admit that that the plants butterflies are attracted to are heavily priced. I paid $12 just for a small plant tuberosa.

    Hi Daniel and WCutler
    Thank you very much for the follow up. I have received a reply from David Suzuki foundation regarding ranger training for 2021.
    She also mentioned ,I must have sighted painted lady and not the monarch butterfly .
    Meanwhile for the butterfly protection enthusiasts ,the flowing link from their website may help to identify many types and record our observations.
