Here is some information I read on the National Wildlife Federation site:
- The Monarch Butterfly has declined 90% in the last twenty years.
- One-third of the summer habitat has been destroyed mostly in the Midwest. (That's my area.)
- Milkweed is the only plant that the Monarch caterpillars use and it has declined because of the use of pesticides.
I feel I can do a small part to help these beautiful creatures. So I've decided to share our journey creating the garden with all of you. I will be able to find math to talk about during this project and hopefully lots of awesome pictures. I'll keep you posted.
Check out my pinterest board on Monarch Butterflies.
If you are interested in starting your own Monarch Butterfly Garden go to any of the following sites for more information.
I'll keep you posted on how it is going. We have our first meeting tomorrow. Wish us luck.
Til next time,
