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. This milkweed is Swamp Milkweed, which is not invasive. For more detailed info on how to help Monarchs go to: GardenClubsofIllinois.org click link: Milkweed for Monarchs
DMV License Plate Decal Another thing we would like to promote is the DMV Monarch License Plate Decal. The proceeds will help fund planting of milkweed along roadside habitats in Illinois. As soon as 2000 people sign up, a license plate/decal will be will be created. The IEC is partnered with the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources in this effort. It is a $10.00 non-refundable fee.
