Regional milkweed pod collection
August through October
Here is a really great opportunity to make sure there's plenty of milkweed for monarchs in the future! Pods can be dropped off at Fenner Nature Center or Eaton Conservation District August through October! 🐛🦋 See flyer for details. You can call Fenner Nature Center for more information. Download the donation slip below:
***It is important to note that we will be taking no more than 25% of the pods off the milkweed as we want to ensure there is seed left to be dispersed in our area.
