A while back I was being interviewed by a television reporter regarding the Bergen County Audubon Society’s “Milkweed in Every Yard” program, a project that was developed to help the Monarch Butterfly. “So why does the Audubon Society care about butterflies, after all aren’t you guys about birds right ?” the grinning reporter asked. I was at first a little surprised by the query. After all who doesn’t care about butterflies? However, it was a very good question, why should anyone care about butterflies anyway?
