The Problem

We are on a mission to help Monarch butterflies. We’re raising money to build a butterfly house at Katie’s Krops. They will need milkweed plants, flowers for nectar, and protection from predators while they grow. The monarch butterflies are an endangered species. They will go extinct without our help. Monarch butterflies are beautiful and help pollinate plants so that we can have flowers to look at and food to eat.

Our Plan

At Katie’s Krops, we are working together as a small group to make big changes! We are planting milkweed because this is the monarch caterpillars’ only food source. It’s important that they have enough! We are also planting flowers to help the monarch butterflies get nectar so they can get the energy they need to travel very long distances, like when they migrate to faraway places like Mexico. We’re planting at our houses, at Katie’s Krops flagship garden and we also received special permission to plant at our local county park! We want everything to be in place for when they are ready to lay eggs and travel. We also hope to build a butterfly house to help keep them safe and protected from predators. We also hope people will learn from us about the monarchs and why they are so important. We want you and whoever is out there to know you can make a change to help! The monarch species is running low and are on the endangered species list. Please come and help us! Thank you for joining Katie’s Krops on our mission to save the monarchs! Visit We love the monarchs!
