Monarch Butterflies and Milkweed

Monarchs cannot survive without milkweed; their caterpillars only eat milkweed plants and monarch butterflies needs milkweed to lay their eggs.  With shifting land management practices, we have lost much milkweed from the landscape and our monarch population is in decline.    Please consider planting milkweed – November is the best month to do this as it is too warm for the ground to be frozen and too cold for the seeds to sprout before winter sets in.
