Waystations

Kirby and others, including Monarchwatch.org and Wild Ones, a leader in the natural landscaping movement, want gardeners to understand how to build and maintain monarch habitats, including milkweed. That is not just an activity for gardeners; it can be undertaken by schools, community groups and local governments.
