Empower your students to have a role in saving the monarch butterfly. The simple act of planting milkweed with your class or family provides monarchs with a place to lay their eggs, and helps ensure this iconic species has a future.
The National Wildlife Federation wants educators and students to be Schoolyard Butterfly Heroes! They are asking educators to post a pledge with a class photo making the international sign language sign for the butterfly on NWF’s Butterfly Heroes website, at www.nwf.org/butterflyheroes.
By taking the pledge, classes will be mailed a free butterfly garden start kit (while supplies last). Botanical Interests is supporting the campaign with a donation of native milkweed and nectar flower seeds suited well to the outdoor classroom.
