Celebrating Native Plant Week with Monarch Success Stories from Grace Ridge Retirement Community

Several residents took a chrysalis in a 12x12 mesh habitat into their apartments and watched the metamorphosis happen!


We are THRILLED to share photos from the Grace Ridge Retirement Community, where they raised an amazing 48 monarchs and released them in their beautiful pollinator garden this fall.  They had children as young as three and residents over one hundred years old involved in this amazing project!  Their campus has been added to the Butterfly Highway and as a registered Monarch Waystation.  We are so impressed with their work, and glad the few milkweed we donated (to help feed their hungry hungry caterpillars) could help!
