Monarch Watch offers plants from fund-raiser

May 29, 2003


Though Monarch Watch's fund-raiser Saturday was a big success, the group still has about 250 milkweed plants, mostly annuals.

"That's really not enough to put on an event for, but if people want them, they're invited to call the office and leave a message. Someone will get back to them; we'll make arrangements," said Monarch Watch director and Kansas University ecology professor Orley "Chip" Taylor. The plants are available for a suggested donation of $2 to $3.

Monarch Watch's telephone number: (888) 824-4464.

Based at KU, Monarch Watch is a national organization dedication to education, conservation and research involving monarch butterflies. Milkweed is the butterfly's favorite food.
