The St. Louis Butterfly Project
The City of St. Louis is launching a citywide initiative to help connect people and urban nature. The STL Milkweeds for Monarchs initiative goals are to increase monarch butterfly habitat and to help people experience the splendor of monarchs in neighborhood parks and spaces.
This initiative will advance a priority in the Mayor’s Sustainability Action Agenda: to foster an enhanced connection between people and urban natural resources. Access to nature can reduce stress and anxiety, nourish the imagination, and provide important learning opportunities.
