    The Planting event was a great success! 

     30+ people worked to plant 1,500 milkweed and nectar plants in 3 areas on the new DOT land. This will provide more diversity in the plant community as well as help to restore monarch butterfly resources that supported the population and migration in previous years.

    Sincere thanks to the many people who came out to help on a hot summer afternoon!—the monarchs will thank us all.

    Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
