Join a community science project with the Chicago Botanic Garden to learn more about the relationship between milkweed plants and monarch butterflies.
Participating families will receive a Milkweed planting kit and will be asked to track butterfly visitors. Budburst kits from the Chicago Botanic Garden will be distributed. Supplies are limited, and families must attend an in-person or virtual training.
For all ages, best for children 6 years and up. Please register only one person per family or group.
