Monarch garden grants deadline approaching

There’s still plenty of time to get on board! The Bring Back the Monarchs to Texas committee of the Native Plant Society of Texas awards grants up to $600 for the planting or improvement of pollinator gardens. We want to support gardens that create more usable Monarch habitat while showcasing native Texas plants in an appealing way. Our partners at the US Forest Service and Monarch Joint Venture help make this program possible.

More information and a link to the simple application can be found here.

When is the deadline? February 1st, 2024

Don’t panic: the application is easy to complete, and layout drawings don’t have to be fancy.

Who or what is eligible? Many non-profits, schools, nature centers, parks, municipal buildings, camps, worship centers, museums and more could qualify if they are located in Texas. If you have specific questions send an email to
