So what can you do? You can plant Milkweed, which is a beautifully flowering perennial that the monarchs eat and love. Collect the seeds, raise the caterpillars, and teach your kids about how they turn into butterflies. Help the monarch population grow again, so we don't lose these beautiful butterflies.
There are two ways to get some Milkweed seeds, online or you can simply send a self addressed, stamped envelope for Milkweed or mixed seeds appropriate for your area to:
Live Monarch - Seed Campaign 2014
3003-C8 Yamato Road #1015
Boca Raton, Florida 33434
Online you can order larger amounts of seeds and even make donations! Each online order will have a 49 cent charge added for postage. But isn't it worth it to help the butterflies?
