The Monarchs are counting on each of us to do our part in protecting their mystery and beauty. Only by working together can we ensure that milkweeds and butterflies will always have a place in this world.

“One gray, cloudy day in June in the panhandle of Texas, I spotted it in a dry creek bed. My first thought was that I had seen a ‘burning bush.’ The fiery-orange, in damp atmosphere and gray light, was astounding and vivid beyond belief. Butterflies were frantically flitting from flower to flower.” ---Zoe Kirkpatrick in Wildflowers of the Western Plains. What more can we say?
