Planting on I-35 to Minnesota and back has been postponed due to rain. We will plant May 26th starting at mile marker 119 at 10am.
Milkweed pick up is Wednesday the 27th from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Walmart parking lot next to Arby’s.
We have over 10,000 Milkweed seeds to distribute. Go to the Monarch page for details. So far we have distributed over 6,520 milkweed seeds and signed up 432 individuals and families to help with the Monarch Butterfly Sustainability Program. You can still sign up by going to the Monarch Page.
Now partnering with Monarch Watch and Monarch Flyway to help reestablish milkweed in Iowa. With our roadside survey of I-35 rest areas with the Iowa DOT complete we have found only four milkweed plants from Minnesota to Missouri! You can now PURCHASE your own Milkweed plugs or Monarch Butterfly caterpillars through us by clicking the Monarch Watch.org image in order to give the arriving Monarchs a place to lay their eggs and to boost the genetic diversity of the species!
WARNING: PWC is not responsible for the mortality of caterpillars due to inappropriate food source, DO NOT PURCHASE CATERPILLARS UNLESS YOU HAVE FRESH MILKWEED TO FEED THEM!
