Register Your Planted Milkweed toward our challenge!


Hosting Butterflies is known for its fun and interactive way of providing experiential education by introducing nature as the world’s greatest treasure hunt.  Did you know that right outside your door nature has deposited little gems that lay in wait for you to find and that holes in your plants are clues to finding them?  With the use of our Treasure Tags you will experience nature in a whole new way that gives you a special connection to the world around you.

 Speaking of the world around you.  Did you also know that the migrating monarchs are on the IUCN’s endangered species list?  I don’t know about you, but this is a reason to make some changes in what we plant in our flowerbeds!  With milkweed as the monarch’s only food source, we are encouraging people everywhere to plant at least one milkweed.  Just imagine what the migrating monarchs will experience upon returning to their breeding grounds, to find that a million people have prepared a safe place for them to eat, rest, and reproduce?  

 At Hosting Butterflies, we are on a mission to repopulate the monarch butterfly species.  We are asking you and 999,999 people to plant milkweed and as an added force, take it to the next level with our Million Milkweed Challenge!  We challenge you to be a part of something big and help us reach the goal of getting a million people to plant one or more milkweed. Join us in the fight to save the monarchs by planting, sharing,  adding your milkweed to our count, and/or finding creative ways for group involvement!  

Monarch’s exist only because you plant milkweed in your yard!
