Monarch and Milkweed

The Monarch and Milkweed Project is in full swing once again this year! Our mission is to have Penn Hills join in an effort across North America to plant native milkweed to help the Monarch butterfly reverse it’s severe population decline. This is the only plant that the Monarch caterpillars eat and so it is completely dependent on this plant for it’s survival.

We have 24 volunteers helping to plant and raise 1000 plants of 3 types of milkweed: butterfly weed with bright orange flowers, swamp milkweed with delicate pink flowers and common milkweed with a ball of pink flowers. The plants will be given away to any Penn Hills resident on Saturday May 21 from 1-3 pm at the Penn Hills Community Garden, our sponsor, located at 1162 Jefferson Rd. Please stop by and pick up a few plants to put in your yard. Donations are welcome but not required. Let’s help bring back the Monarchs!
