Anyone interested in helping migrating Monarch butterflies that stop to rest in Arizona can learn how during a training session later this month.

Girl Scout Isabelle Jacobs will make a presentation about the migration pattern of the butterflies 10 a.m. Saturday, July 21, inside the Granite Reef Senior Center, 1700 N. Granite Reef Road, Scottsdale.

The scout created the new Butterfly Garden at the senior center for her Girl Scout Gold Award project.

The garden is filled with butterfly and pollinator friendly plants and Arizona milkweed to help the Monarchs on their journey.

Her presentation will be followed by a garden tour and training for those who want to volunteer for the Butterfly Garden Club.

The event is open to adults, families and Girl Scout troops. No experience is necessary. Refreshments will be served.
