Monarch Butterflies

Need milkweeds for survival

Please do not destroy

The migratory monarch butterfly is now classified as “Endangered”.
They are a tiny, delicate creature that can travel nearly 3000 miles from the northern US and southern Canada to its overwintering destination in Mexico.  They exhibit the most highly evolved migration pattern of any known species of butterfly or moth and perhaps any known insect.
They lay their eggs only on milkweed plants, which will eventually serve as a food source for the caterpillars.
