Seed Collection for Milkweed and Monarch Butterflies

Time: 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Location: Environmental Concern Inc., Boundary Lane, Saint Michaels, MD, USA

Butterfly milkweed seed pods.

Join us on Friday, September 7th from 11:00 am until noon. You’ll gain all of the knowledge you need to help us increase milkweed seed inventory for the 2019 milkweed crop. Monarchs need milkweed to survive. They only lay their eggs on milkweed leaves, and Monarch caterpillars only eat milkweed. Monarchs are currently on the “Near Threatened ” species list due to the decline in the habitat they need to survive. Join the “Seed Stewards for Monarchs“, and help Environmental Concern grow more milkweed for the Monarch butterfly. Share your seed, and we’ll share our milkweed plants. The presentation will only last for 1 hour, but your support will last for generations.
