How Many Monarchs Have You Seen This Year?

They need habitat, and small sites do matter.  Here is some pretty good information for homeowners, however, I prefer to specify natives only. If everyone put in a garden like this, it would really have great positive impact.

I do see butterflies in the urban gardens and industrial/corporate sites we have been working on.

FYI –  a few more facts.

I was struck once again with the lack of flowers on my back-road drive to Peoria last week.  We can do better. We can replant our native plants. We can co-exist, and we all will thrive when nature thrives.

The best thing we can all do is plant more habitat – more natives!
