Many of our members are drawn to native plants because of the butterflies they attract. Below is a list of miscellaneous Monarch and milkweed resources as well as all things butterfly and pollinator gardening. We hope this list serves as a general resource. Be sure to check out the Bring Back the Monarchs to Texas program and the I-35 Waystation program for more information and ways to get involved.
