Folks were able to learn all about monarch butterflies and how to help them.

Organizers say the population of monarch butterflies is down about 90 percent from 20 years ago.

Community members learned how they can help the population by planting milkweed and other pollinator plants.

They were also able to see live monarch eggs, caterpillars, and butterflies.

This event was put on by the Duluth Monarch Butterflies, a grassroots non-profit organization dedicated to helping preserve monarch butterflies.
