Oregon Butterflies: What They Need to Thrive

March 9 @ 1:00 pm

Join JCLS and the Jackson County Master Gardeners to learn about native butterflies and their habitats! This virtual presentation by Master Gardener Lynn Kunstman will share information about butterflies found in Oregon, their native landscapes and food sources, and how we can help them thrive.

Lynn Kunstman is a Master Gardener living in Medford, Oregon. She has lived in the Rogue Valley since 1986. She holds a bachelor’s degree in wildlife management and a Master’s Degree of Science in Education. A retired middle school science and special education teacher, Lynn’s students at Ashland Middle School established the school’s butterfly garden. Her first project upon retiring and moving from Ashland to Medford was to mulch out all the lawns on her property. Lynn’s entire front yard in Medford is now given over to wildlife, planted with edible trees and shrubs, as well as pollinator plants. The back yard is planted in fruit trees, berries and vegetables, for the humans. She is an enthusiastic advocate of gardens planted with wildlife, pollinators, and butterflies in mind.
