Our family fell in love with monarchs about 10 years ago when a friend gave us a monarch caterpillar and some milkweed in a habitat. We were instantly hooked and we set up our own backyard butterfly garden with milkweed and nectar plants. From there, each summer we would adopt several families, give them habitats and educate them on the process. In the past few years, we've aspired to a bigger reach and have set up habitats in local community areas. Our goal is to inspire families to set up their own gardens even if it's just a few plants behind their garage!
