Northern State University biology faculty and students will host a public open house at one of two new Monarch Waystations in Aberdeen. The “Pollinator Garden Community Meet and Greet” will be held 5-7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 14, at Kuhnert Arboretum, located south of Melgaard Road. Drs. Alyssa Anderson and Jodie Ramsay will attend, along with NSU biology student interns Tessa Durnin, Sean Kramer and Matt Wiebers. The NSU team will be available to answer questions, talk about the plants and hand out packets of wildflower seeds as well as milkweed seeds, the only plant that monarch caterpillars eat. They also hope to do monarch tagging demonstrations, and students will bring along insect collections. For more information, contact Ramsay at Jodie.Ramsay@northern.edu.
