Grow Milkweed and Help Save the Monarch Butterflies

Could the monarchs one day actually go extinct? It's not unheard of. The loss of milkweed is directly related to the loss of monarchs. Let's all grow milkweed and preserve this majestic species of butterfly.

The Monarch migration is happening now; good timing!
Not everyone has the knowledge, patience and resources to rescue the eggs, gather the necessary food, clean the frass and help the Monarchs to become adults safe from predators but we all can plant milkweed. Thumbs up Hurray!

I keep hoping the rains will start before migrating Monarchs (and other butterflies that come here in fall) show up here. It's too dry and sunny now. I've kept the Texas Milkweed out on the property going (except a few the critters killed by digging them up) with water, but the Antelope Horns is dormant still. Very few blooms except in my yard.
I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority. E. B.White
Integrity can never be taken. It can only be given, and I wasn't going to give it up to these people. Gary Mowad
