Fall into Monarchs with Dr. Coby Klein

Monarch butterflies are among the most recognizable insects in America, with an astounding autumn migration seen throughout Long Island lasting thousands of miles. A series of man-made problems are causing an ongoing and serious population decline. Find out about the monarch's life cycle, what they do for us, and what we can do for them. Attendees will go home with milkweed seeds (limited supply). Teens who attend will earn 1 hour of community service credit.

Tuesday, September 20 @ 7 PM


Virtual Teen Advisory Board Meetings

Do you want to get involved and help with planning future Teen programs and book purchases here at the Jericho Library? Join our Teen Advisory Board! We will meet once per month to talk about these things and more. Participants will earn 1 hour of community service credit.
