DuPage Monarch Project is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2020 Jane Foulser Habitat and Pat Miller Community Engagement awards on Tuesday January 19th at 2:00 pm. You are invited to join us in recognizing these outstanding achievements in increasing pollinator habitat and the community’s awareness of solutions for monarch decline.

The Illinois Monarch Project (illinoismonarchproject.org) has set a goal of 150 million new stems of milkweed by 2038. Every new stem planted at home, or at a school, library or church garden helps IMP reach that goal. Our landscaping can be part of the solution to monarch decline by adding milkweed and fall-blooming asters and making small changes in maintenance practices when areas are mowed and cleaned up in spring and fall.

We encourage you to widely share the link with interested staff and volunteers. Saving monarchs needs all hands-on deck, everyone is welcome to participate.

DuPage Monarch Project is a collaboration of the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County, River Prairie Group of the Illinois Sierra Club, The Conservation Foundation and Wild Ones Greater DuPage Chapter, dedicated to the protection of monarch butterflies and pollinators.
