Monarch season in Merritt's Pasture
Ken Moore devotes his Carrboro Citizen column this week to the milkweed stand in Merritt's Pasture. Paul and Tucker were among the "observant citizens" he mentions who noted the annual return of the monarchs to this spot; I was on the Town Council committee that decided to mark out the milkweed stands so that they wouldn't get mowed down at the wrong time of the year. The metal stakes aren't all that attractive, but they do their job.
Do as Ken suggests and go check it out yourself--till the heat breaks, best early in the morning.
