Did you know that most of the gardeners who have certified their butterfly gardens with NABA include milkweed in their list of plants?
In response to the overwhelming popularity of gardening for Monarchs, NABA has added a second outdoor, waterproof sign to its butterfly garden certification program! Certified butterfly gardeners who wish to display this sign should grow at least one type of milkweed in their garden.
When you certify your garden with NABA, you now have the choice of purchasing a sign that reflects your passion for Monarchs, a sign that shows that you have a butterfly garden designed for all butterflies, or you could even purchase both!
For people who have already certified their gardens with NABA and wish to purchase the sign with the Monarch image, please send $25 to NABA, 4 Delaware Road, Morristown, NJ 07960. Please include your name and mailing address along with any information that you would like to share about Monarchs and milkweed in your garden.
For people who have not yet certified their gardens, please visit CERTIFICATION INFORMATION to learn about the program and access the certification application.
