The International Union for Conservation of Nature has just placed the Migratory Monarch Butterfly on its Red List as an Endangered species. But there are some things we can do to help migratory Monarch Butterflies! 1. Plant milkweed that's native to your area, and safe for monarch butterflies. 2. Don't use pesticides in your yard. 3. Keep native pollinator plants. In the Fall, they feed on flower nectar, such as Asters and Goldenrod. Your local nursery can help you choose the best ones for your area. 4. Plant trees, which they use for shelter and a resting place while on their journey. 5. Buy wood that's Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified. This certification means the wood was not taken illegally from a protected forest which otherwise helps monarchs and other wildlife. 6. Visit and support organizations that promote migratory Monarch Butterflies such as California's Central Coast Parks Monarch Grove.
