Mayor's Monarch Pledge/Butterfly Heroes Pledge
Mayor Renda has signed the Mayor’s Monarch Pledge,
through the National Wildlife Federation.
The Pledge is a commitment to restore butterfly habitat in Moreland
Hills and to encourage our residents to do the same because the Monarch Butterfly population has declined
by 90% in the last 20 years.
The Village will be planting
our very own Butterfly Garden at Veteran’s Gateway Park this year on June 8th @ 4:30pm. Please see our News & Events section for more information on this event.
Moreland Hills Residents can do their part to help restore butterfly habitat in the Village!
By planting native milkweeds and other nectar-producing plants in your yards/gardens, it will provide habitat for the butterfly population.
To help you get started in your efforts, you can take the Butterfly Heroes Pledge which runs through June 1, to create a butterfly/pollinator habitat this spring.
Take the pledge online at www.nwf.org/ButterflyHeroes, and once you do, you will receive a FREE kit in the mail with native milkweed or nectar plant seeds and a regional native plant list.
We can all do our part to help save this iconic species.
