Scientists at the Field’s Keller Science Action Center are working to understand the role urban places play in supporting monarch butterflies, to implement community science programs around Chicago, and to develop resources that nearly anyone can use to help monarchs and other pollinators.
Join us in taking actions big and small to help the monarch butterfly. We’re working to transform low-quality green spaces into high-quality homes for monarchs and other pollinators. This means introducing milkweed—the only plant monarch caterpillars can eat—and other native flowers that provide nectar as food for butterflies and other wildlife. Milkweed and native flowers can thrive in home gardens and in natural areas around schools, offices, parks, and roads.
