The Problem

The lack of native plants in our neighborhood and the monarch butterfly being added to the Endangered Species List.

Our Plan

Planting native plants around our yard bought at our local nature society’s annual native plant sale. We will create an ecosystem that welcomes wildlife, especially the monarchs. We will focus on planting lots of milkweed plants to support the monarchs.
