The Problem

Monarchs will only lay eggs on milkweed, and they face a new challenge today as milkweed is rapidly decreasing from new developments and the popular use of herbicides in croplands.

Our Plan

We harvested seeds from the milkweed we've planted in various community locations and have invited the community to help plant them at a local park in order to restore the Monarch habitat. Habitat restoration will also include removing trash, debris, and noxious weeds, and will conclude with a live butterfly release. The project is in observance of 9/11 National Day of Service and is hosted by Hutchings Museum Institute and Lehi City.
