Runnymede Park's Monarch Waystation 

The Monarch Waystation was installed as a garden for butterflies to find and use. Monarch Butterflies need particular plants on which to lay eggs so that their caterpillars can hatch and feed.  Other butterflies also can use the garden when they are looking for flower nectar to sip.
