Free Milkweeds for Restoration Projects

Monarch Watch received funding for at least 100,00 more free milkweeds to be distributed Spring 2020! To qualify, applicants must have a minimum of two acres to restore to natural, native habitat, and have a management plan in place. Milkweeds are awarded on a first come, first served basis, so apply early. Since the program began in 2015, about 528,000 milkweeds have been planted in restored habitat through much of the range of the eastern monarch population. Those awarded free milkweeds need only pay a modest shipping charge.
