The Problem

This project will create a butterfly garden adjacent to our school\'s rain gardens. It will provide habitats for butterflies that are struggling. With severe deforestation and more extreme weather, this garden will provide a resting and refueling spot.

Our Plan

The project will plant milkweed seeds in a location near the school. This garden will be cultivated throughout the warmer seasons in the hopes that butterflies will be able to rest and eat. Once the milkweed seeds are successfully grown, more plants such as rue, dill, and parsley will be introduced to attract a greater variety of butterflies.
