THE MONARCH
FUELING PROJECT


The monarch migration occurs twice every year, a journey north to breeding ground and a journey south to overwinter. The 4,000 round trip journey is in danger due to loss of habitat. When monarchs are migrating they need to rest and refuel by collecting/eating nectar from blooming plants. If there are not any blooming plants available when the monarchs stops, they will not have any energy to continue the journey and never reach their destination. You can help monarchs reach their destinations by planting flowers that bloom when monarchs will be passing through your area. Click on your area below to get a list of plants that will help support the monarch migration by providing them with the fuel they need for their journey. Remember that monarch eggs rely on milkweeds, so make sure you include them in your planting too!
