Default The incredible journey of the Butterflies

NOVA
The secret world of the Monarch butterfly.

If you get the NOVA channel in TV , on Friday up here this program is playing.
It is from 2009. I think you will like it.

I love this. Up north, we had courses on how to plant things in your yard to help butterflies and birds instead of putting in designer shrubs. The gardens were beautiful and rewarding.
