Milkweed Planting in Glen Ellyn, June 20

This past school year, students from Ben Franklin School learned about declining Monarch butterfly populations. One of the main reasons for the Monarch's downward trend is a loss of milkweed plants - a requirement for caterpillar survival. Our students brought this issue to the attention of the Village of Glen Ellyn and the Park District. It is now the Year of the Monarch in Glen Ellyn!

Help Plant Milkweed Way Stations in Glen Ellyn this Saturday, June 20, from 9 to 11 a.m. Participants will also receive free milkweed plants to take home for community home gardens!
