Hope for Monarchs in Oklahoma City!

This is really exciting news! Mick Cornett, the mayor of my hometown Oklahoma City has signed the National Wildlife Federation's "Mayors Monarch Pledge" along with 49 other mayors in 16 states.

The Mayors’ Monarch Pledge encourages mayors and other local government chief executives to take action to help the threatened butterfly in their community. With the pledge, cities and municipalities are committing to create monarch butterfly habitat and educate citizens by:
  • Planting a monarch-friendly demonstration garden at city hall to provide habitat for countless butterflies and serve as a learning tool for citizens that want to create their own gardens at home.
  • Converting abandoned and vacant lots to monarch habitat.
  • Changing mowing practices and establishing “no mow zones” along roadside and in parks to allow milkweed to grow and support monarch caterpillars.
  • Hosting an annual monarch butterfly festival. 

The Mayor's Monarch Pledge is a call-to-action organized by the National Wildlife Federation. I'm so proud that my mayor has taken this pledge and I'm looking forward to learning the details of what specific actions our city will be taking! I will definitely keep you guys updated!
