We are now listed in the national database for the National Wildlife Federation Mayors' Monarch Pledge cities.
The Monarch Waystation will be implemented at the Piedmont Community Park. This will be a certified Waystation both with Monarchwatch.org and the NWF as a wildlife habitat. It will also be our first public Waystation in Piedmont.
After my nominations for Piedmont Primary, all three elementaries, and the Intermediate, our schools have received free butterfly garden kits to certify their own school sites as NWF garden habitats--an important component for the pledge action item list to increase community awareness and involvement for Monarch conservation.
We have also been awarded a $500 grant of native milkweed plugs from Monarchwatch.org after my application and essay was selected. More on that to come.
