Question and Answer

Can milkweed plants growing in backyards across the U.S. make a difference?

Yes! Everyone’s habitat makes a difference, especially when there are many together that start to build a connected network of habitats. Planting milkweed in your garden or yard creates much needed habitat for monarchs in your area, and allows them to live and reproduce to create the next generation of monarchs. It also raises awareness in your community and encourages others to plant milkweed themselves, which is how we can spread the word and get even more habitat created.
