waystation-signOur Pollinator & Wildlife Habitat at the corner of Barnett Avenue and Amsterdam Road is now certified by MONARCHWATCH.ORG as WAYSTATION #19178 in support of the conservation and preservation of the beloved, endangered Monarch butterfly and it’s spectacular annual migration.

A Pollinator & Wildlife Habitat group has been formed to participate in Monarchwatch activities; and to further enhance, develop and maintain the Habitat. Church and community members of all ages who are interested in learning more about this group may contact Bob & Shelley Benchoff at 717-749-5202.

The first activity this season is to prepare the ground and plant butterfly bushes and nectar flowers in the milkweed & wildflower area.

When the sunflowers are in bloom group members will be needed to host and cut sunflowers at advertised times for church & community members. Each family will be given sunflowers with a limit of five per visit. Of course everyone is welcome to take as many photos as desired at anytime.
