Additional information

From Noon to 4PM on the weekend of October 12 & 13, stop by the ranger station to pick up FREE milkweed seeds to take home and plant or to give to a friend. Seeds scattered in the fall will germinate over the winter and begin sprouting in the spring. This is something that anyone can do to help the butterflies. Remember: save the milkweed, save the monarchs!
