Monarch butterfly on grass-leaved goldenrod
Help Support Monarchs at Haehnle Sanctuary!
Monarch Watch granted Michigan Audubon 450 milkweed seedlings to help support monarchs and pollinators at Phyllis Haehnle Memorial Sanctuary. If you’d like to help, please join us at Haehnle on Friday, June 10 from 9am – Noon for a planting workday.
On Friday we will split into teams, each taking a flat or two of plants to fill the marked areas. These areas will require a short to medium walk from the parking lot. We will provide maps, a limited supply of tools, snacks, and bottled water. Please bring the following if you can: watering can, gallons or buckets of water, gardening gloves, small rake, hand trowel or plug planter. Swamp milkweed will be planted in slightly wetter areas, so please bring rubber boots if you’re willing to work in low spots. Please dress for a morning in the outdoors: sunscreen, insect repellent, hat, long pants, long-sleeved shirt, and closed-toe shoes are recommended. There are no restrooms available at the sanctuary.
Meet at 9am in the Haehnle Parking lot on Seymour Road, across from 9011 Seymour Rd., Leoni Township, MI 49240.
Please contact Rachelle Roake at RRoake@michiganaudubon.org if you can come out to help us plant milkweed.
