Wooo Hooo - Going to MonarchWatch Open House tomorrow.

10,000 plants - SWEET - Thumbs up 12 Milkweed varieties including Tropical BTW. (Interesting and of 12 species, Ascelpias curassavica is listed first.)

This is particularly of interest to me personally, since my group, Missourians for Monarchs - Naturalists & Gardeners NW Missouri region was our statewide group's first and only recipient of a restoration grant from Monarch Watch.

We just finished my group's first (and largest of 9) projects - a 10 acre prairie restoration with plants from the MonarchWatch grant. Thanks to them and NRDC for providing funding.

You can check out some pics in the albums here (Mort Nelson Project):
