We have been leaving all the milkweed growing around our building this year to see if we can help the Monarch Butterfly.

We are excited to that we have found 3 caterpillars on our plants.

Hopefully they will make it to full grown Monarch Butterflies.

The Monarch population has dropped steeply as much as 80% down from just a few years ago.

You can help keep them from extinction by leaving some milkweed growing.

The pella wildlife company can send you milkweed seed and caterpillars http://pellawildlifecompany.org/ for a small donation.
