The National Wildlife Federation's Butterfly Heroes campaign seeks to bring awareness to the declining monarch population and connect kids to nature by offering free Butterfly Garden Starter Kits with everything you need to create your own butterfly garden. The kits include native milkweed seeds, gardening tips, Ranger Rick Nature Notebook and directions to grow or expand your habitat garden!
This program focuses to engage urban and under privileged children with nature. We would like offer a supply of Garden Starter kits to share with the mentors in your community. Planting the seeds and creating a community butterfly garden is a great opportunity for mentors to spend time outdoors with the kids they are mentoring.
Supplies are limited so spread the word! Please share the attached badge this March on your newsletters, emails, websites, and social media channels to spread the word about pledging to be a Butterfly Hero. Groups are limited to 35 kits and each group will need to pledge to receive kits.
Save the Date - pledge page opens on Tuesday March 27th.
