FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentuckians interested in helping butterfly populations can attend an event this week at the Salato Wildlife Education Center at Frankfort.

Participants can help plant a butterfly waystation at the conclusion of the program on Saturday. Salato Center officials say that with Monarch butterfly numbers in retreat due to habitat loss, waystations are special plantings along migration routes designed to provide food to adults and larvae.

The program will be included with the cost of general admission into the center, but registration is required. To register, call (502) 564-7863.

The Salato Center is operated by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. The center is located off U.S. 60, about a mile and a half west of the U.S. 127 intersection.
