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, 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.
