Friends of Cook Forest Series: Milkweed for Monarchs Planting Event


Monarch butterflies cannot survive without milkweed; their caterpillars only eat milkweed plants and monarch butterflies need milkweed to lay their eggs. Milkweed continues to decline across the landscape, which negatively affects monarch populations. Please join us at the Log Cabin Inn Environmental Learning Classroom for a short presentation before splitting into groups to plant milkweed in a few prime locations in the park.
