This Saturday – Milkweed for Monarchs

Join us on Saturday, May 21 for the second annual Fox Nation Plant Milkweed to Save the Monarch Butterfly Event.

Come out and help us plant Milkweed to support the Monarch butterfly population and help them thrive in our local Forest Preserves. Monarchs cannot survive without milkweed; their caterpillars only eat milkweed plants, and monarch butterflies need milkweed to lay their eggs. With shifting land management practices, we have lost much milkweed from the landscape.
