On Earth Day 2014 Mayor Slay launched an initiative to promote planting 50 "Milkweeds for Monarchs" gardens throughout the City of St. Louis to attract and feed migrating Monarchs. The CWE's contribution spearheaded by Alderman Lyda Krewson, and planted by the neighborhood's Bowood Farms, is located east of the sunflower project on Delmar Blvd.
When I stopped by a couple of weeks ago, I missed spotting a Monarch but found a different kind of butterfly visiting the coneflowers planted there.
