Animals we share the planet with are in decline due to habitat loss where we live, work, play and learn. Monarch butterflies have declined by 90% over the last 20 years; an indicator of the type of losses we are facing.
Providing plants on which monarchs can raise their caterpillars, and offering nectar and pollen sources will help rebuild the health of this iconic butterfly, as well as bees, birds and other pollinators.
Little Seeds and the National Wildlife Federation have partnered to bring awareness to the declining pollinator population and specifically provide butterfly garden kits to schools in the Central Monarch Migration Corridor to help rebuild the monarch populations.

Monarch butterflies migrate during the day and then come down at night in clusters.
