New Monarch Waystation @ ODL

The AOEA and Outdoor Lab staff continually work to improve the eco-system as the Outdoor Lab.

Each year we focus on a few projects in which AOEA volunteers and ODL staff plant native species and remove non-natives.

For the Spring of 2023 planting season, we are targeting a garden area near our cottage where we have been removing invasive Japanese Stiltgrass.  We plan to replace the invasive stiltgrass with native plants to create a Monarch Waystation.

If you’d like to help us with this project, please contact our volunteer coordinator at  This project will be on a weekend in Spring of 2023, date and time tbd.
