Monarch Waystation Program
|Where||Global, anywhere on the planet|
Monarch butterflies need our help. You can aid them by creating "Monarch Waystations" (monarch habitats) in home gardens, at schools, businesses, parks, zoos, nature centers, along roadsides, and on other unused plots of land.
You can certify your new or existing monarch habitat to show that you are contributing to monarch conservation. Upon certification your site will be included in the International Monarch Waystation Registry, an online listing of Monarch Waystations.
Without a major effort to restore milkweeds to as many locations as possible, the monarch population is certain to decline to extremely low levels. By creating and maintaining a Monarch Waystation you are contributing to monarch conservation, an effort that will help assure the preservation of the species and the continuation of the spectacular monarch migration phenomenon.
|How to Join||
An easy way to establish a new Monarch Waystation is to order a Monarch Waystation Seed Kit developed by Monarch Watch.
A limited number of Monarch Waystation Seed Kits are available for $16 and include 12 varieties of nectar and monarch host plants as well as a detailed "Creating a Monarch Waystation" guide. Kits may be ordered via the Monarch Watch Shop online at http://shop.MonarchWatch.org or by calling (800)780-9986. You can also buy your own seeds using Monarch Watch's guide to creating a waystation: http://www.monarchwatch.org/waystations/waystation_guide.pdf
