Joy Todd Monarch Butterflies & Pleasant Valley Museum Garden
November 18, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Have you heard that the Monarch Butterfly is being added to the Endangered Species list? Sadly, its numbers have been steadily declining since 2003—yet there’s something that you can personally do— to save them.
Joy Todd is the person at the Pleasant Valley Museum who knows the most about gardens and butterflies. Not only do monarchs thrive on the numerous wild tropical milkweed plants at the Charles L. Honn Botanical Garden, but the garden has been designated as an urban bee lab for UC-Berkeley.
Joy has resided in Camarillo for 50 years and comes to us from the Pleasant Valley Historical Society, where she presently serves as president of the board and manager of the accessions and displays at the museum.
A Southern California native who grew up in Northridge, Joy graduated from San Fernando Valley State College (CSUN) with a degree in Political Science and History. In 2014 she received the honorary title of Doña from the Pleasant Valley Historical Society for her volunteer service in the community and served on the Ventura County Civil Grand Jury for two years.
