Applications will be reviewed in the order that they are received.
Note to Texas applicants: EACH Texas recipient will receive a full flat of 50 plants. If 50 plants are too many for your garden space, find a partner organization such as a school, library, public park or nature center. We will need an application from both organizations.
Additional Resources to Explore:
The US Fish and Wildlife Service created a downloadable Schoolyard Habitat Project Guide and the USFWS Schoolyard Habitat Program helps teachers and students create wildlife habitat at their own schools.
The St. Louis Butterfly Project created Resource Page with an abundant source of information about monarchs, milkweed and community science programs.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT NATIVE MILKWEEDS:
These plants may be free to you, but they are incredibly valuable (retail value is between $100-160 per flat; value to monarchs is without measure), and we want them to succeed. Every year, we receive feedback from recipients, saying that their plants "died," even when we know that the plants were strong and healthy when they left the nursery.
