Monarch Butterfly Project

  • Location
    Wilmette, Illinois
  • Status

The Problem

To plant successful Milkweed plants that will attract Monarch Butterflies and that more eggs will be laid on the Milkweed.

Our Plan

We are going to grow 25-50 successful Milkweed plants and then plant them in locations such as, Elmwood Dunes Reserve, (We helped to restore the Reserve in a past project), Marie Murphy School Peace Garden, the Avoca West Outdoor Classroom, and possibly the Wilmette Prairie Garden.
