Read for Adventure’s new book, Juniper’s Butterfly Garden, was written by Oklahoma City resident and OKC Zoo’s marketing coordinator, Autumn Heigle, and illustrated by Nadia Ronquillo. The story follows a child’s journey as she learns about monarch butterflies and how she can help conserve this important pollinator in her own backyard. Additionally, readers will find information about planting a garden for monarchs and other pollinators and their migratory path through Oklahoma.
