schools and Monarch Waystations

Numerous Michigan schools have registered their butterfly gardens as Monarch Waystations.

As their website says "...we need to create, conserve, and protect milkweed/monarch habitats. We need you to help us and help monarchs by creating "Monarch Waystations" (monarch habitats) in home gardens, at schools, businesses, parks, zoos, nature centers, along roadsides, and on other unused plots of land. ... By creating and maintaining a Monarch Waystation you are contributing to monarch conservation, an effort that will help assure the preservation of the species and the continuation of the spectacular monarch migration phenomenon."

Some include:

Evergreen Elementary Butterfly Garden Allendale MI 49401

Way Elementary School Bloomfield Hills MI 48302

West Shore-Torrey Hill Elementary Fenton MI 48430

Gilbey Elementary School Kalamazoo MI 49009
