About the Author

I am the author of "Learn About Butterflies in the Garden", a Co-founder and the President of Southeast Michigan Butterfly Association (SEMBA), a member of North American Butterfly Association (NABA), Michigan Entomological Society, The Lepidopterists' Society, Wild Ones, and Wildflower Association of Michigan (WAM). I'm an Advanced Master Gardener and was awarded "Master Gardener of the Year 2007" for Wayne County by Michigan State University Extension. The Master Gardener Association of Wayne County awarded me the MGAWC 2008 Dean Krauskopf, Ph.D. Educational Outreach Award. My yard is certified by SEMBA as a Native Butterfly Garden, Monarch Watch as a Monarch Waystation and the National Wildlife Federation as a Wildlife Habitat. From 2002 through 2011, I have raised over 3513 butterflies.

I have given lectures at Master Gardener meetings, nurseries, garden clubs, Wild Ones: Native Plants, Natural Landscapes, DTE Energy Company, Canton City Leisure Services, and schools on butterfly gardening. I also had a program "How to Attract Butterflies to Your Garden" on Westland Public TV - WLND, which was filmed while I was giving a talk at the Westland Public Library. Several newspapers have written stories about my Butterfly Garden. I try to share my knowledge about butterfly plants and rearing butterflies with as many people as I can. We need to give back to the earth. We can do this by planting the native plants that were intended to be here. Native plants have higher nectar content than most non-natives and they produce a healthy ecosystem by attracting a wider variety of birds and insects, which enhance the biodiversity. — Brenda Dziedzic
