Lee Ann explaining to me about Monarch Butterflies. She’s a volunteer for Three Rivers park district. Last year, there was the lowest amount of monarch butterflies ever recorded in Mexico, She told me that planting milkweed and nectar flours can create a positive environment for these insects. Milkweed is the only plant on which monarch butterflies will lay their eggs, and it is the primary food source for monarch caterpillars. Despite its necessity to the species, the plant decreased 21 percent in the United States between 1995 and 2013.  #peopleofdinkytown
