Jeanne Megel, a renowned biologist, is asking High Point, North Carolina readers to help in the conservation of monarch butterflies with her new book ‘Raise Healthy Monarchs At Home’.
As author Jeanne Megel says, not everyone can save a coral reef, but everyone can raise a monarch butterfly, and that’s exactly what her new book will teach you to do.
It teaches you how you can raise healthy monarch butterflies in your back garden at home and covers all the steps in the process, accompanied by clear instructional photographs. The book is being targeted to High Point readers because of your key location in the migratory path of the beautiful butterflies.

The release of the book coincides with the birth season for migratory monarch butterflies. Generally born throughout August and September, these butterflies can live up to eight or nine months as they traverse the height of the United States.
As such, Jeanne Megel believes that it is the perfect moment for home gardeners and families around High Point to begin cultivating and raising the butterflies at home.
Much as bee endangerment awareness has led to a marked increase in bee colonies, with some states like Maine counting as great as a 78% increase in the last two years, Megel believes that you need to be made aware of the plight of the endangered monarch.
As a key pollinator, the butterfly is essential to ecosystems in, around and beyond High Point. Therefore, in her book, Megel turns almost 10 years of research, study and experience into easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions that will teach you how to collect butterfly eggs, feed the caterpillars, monitor the chrysalis stage and ultimately release the adult butterflies.
The key emphasis of the book is also on releasing healthy adult butterflies. As such, the book gives you instructions on first aid, selecting the right food sources and safety practices to follow.
High Point is in close proximity to The Cole Family Monarch Conservation Center and Butterfly House at the Greensboro Science Center. Megel also recommends this valued institution to you if you want to get a sense of how your conservation efforts can make an incredible difference to the monarch butterfly population.
Jeanne Megel is a renowned master gardener who typically raises 500 monarch butterflies single-handedly every season.
A spokesperson for the author said, “Raising monarch butterflies at home is a truly rewarding adventure! It is a learning experience that enriches your life and also increases your understanding of the importance of butterflies in our environment and our very being.”
Now is the time to start raising healthy monarchs at home to send them on their vast and vital migratory journey across the country.
