Monarch Watch

Help Monarch Watch continue its mission to restore habitats for monarchs and native pollinators. Our Free Milkweeds for Restoration Projects and Free Milkweeds for Schools and Nonprofits programs need your support.


Monarch Watch is a nonprofit education, conservation, and research program based at the University of Kansas. Declining monarch numbers, due to massive habitat losses associated with changes in agriculture and development, have led us to focus on monarch conservation. In an effort to address these losses, Monarch Watch has distributed 1 million native milkweed plants across the U.S. in the last 6 years. This effort has been funded through grants and contributions. Your help is needed to extend and expand these programs. Our milkweed distribution programs and outreach are nationwide and are unmatched by other organizations.


Your support on One Day. One KU. will help us restore habitat for monarchs and other native pollinators. Specifically, your donation will be used to:


• administer free milkweed grants to schools and nonprofits

• provide milkweed plants for school gardens created and maintained by grantees

• provide milkweed plants for large-scale restoration projects


Your support of our Free Milkweeds program will have a lasting impact on monarchs and pollinator populations. The milkweeds we distribute are native perennials that will multiply and continue to provide resources to countless insects for years to come.
