The Problem

IHHS Pandas in Action would like to help the plight of the Monarch butterflies that migrate through California by planting areas around campus with native milkweed. Our wish is that Monarchs will find our campus and the native milkweed we plant to be the perfect place to stop to reproduce and feed.

Our Plan

We will plant California milkweed (Asclepias fascicularis) in the hopes that we can be part of a larger effort to provide habitat for Monarchs to reproduce, for the voracious larvae to feed, and to provide native habitat for other butterfly species, moths and the various insects and invertebrates that will take up residence in our “butterfly gardens.” The habitat created for Monarchs will also support the declining bee population.
