First, it is important to note that without the help of the Monarch Butterfly, a key pollinator, our food production could be damaged beyond repair. Our efforts, then, to bolster the butterfly population are critical.
Let’s take action to help the Monarchs:
- PLANT milkweed and nectar plants native to your area, these can be found at most garden shops.
- CREATE a Monarch Waystation by urging that these Monarch-friendly plants be planted at schools, businesses and community gardens.
- AVOID toxic pesticides when maintaining your plants and choose organically grown foods.
- EDUCATE others about the importance of Monarchs through conversation; encourage them to take action to support these beautiful creatures and to support other environmental conservation efforts.
