Castro Butterflies

Members and friends have been taking photos of the butterfly explosion resulting from Ellen Reisinger’s design and implementation of the Monarch Waystation at the Linda S. Castro Nature Sanctuary and the natural Castro landscape in general. We have documented over 200 native plant species in this 4-acre plot: more biodiversity = more butterflies.

Aransas Pathways properties in Rockport will have a continuing need for volunteers to create and maintain pollinator gardens, Monarch Waystations, prairie restoration, and add local native plants to the trails. Workdays and project leaders:
