Many gardeners ask us what they can do to attract butterflies to their gardens, so we’ve compiled some articles and resources to help shed light on the long-term decline of Monarch butterflies and to make you aware of conservation efforts underway to help bring their numbers back.
- Plant Milkweed. This flowering native plays a critical role in the Monarch’s life cycle as the caterpillars feed exclusively on the leaves.
- Avoid using pesticides. Studies suggest that a holistic approach may be needed for Monarch conservation as toxic chemicals may be a contributing factor in their decline.
