The map (above) shows just some of the gardens that have changed their gardening choices so that butterflies can grow and increase in numbers. Over the coming months, information about the specific gardens will be added.
But if you care about increasing the amount of gardens that protect and promote butterflies, displaying a NABA certified butterfly garden sign in your garden helps to let others know that butterflies need our help. Your sign is a conversation starter with neighbors who might want to join with you by creating their own gardens. Having a sign posted in your garden is just one of the ways that each person can help educate others about the need for butterfly habitat.
Garden signs are available when garden certification is applied for. There are two styles of signs available, one with an image of a Swallowtail and one with an image of a Monarch.
