Our club has ordered milkweed seeds that we are handing out at our plant sale and to club members to plant in their yards or other places to create habitats that will encourage the Monarch Butterfly to hopefully thrive.

Another thing we would like to promote is the DMV Monarch License Plate Decal. The proceeds will help fund planting of milkweed roadside habitats in Illinois. As soon as 2000 people sign up, a decal will be created The IEC is partnered with Natural Resources Defense Coucnil and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources in this effort. So far only several hundred people have sent in their request. It is a &10.00 non-refundabel fee. If you are interested you can download the forms here.
