Milkweed seed pod - deadline to drop off at Soil & Water office
The Ohio Pollinator Habitat Initiative is calling on all Ohioans for another year of Milkweed pod collections!
Milkweed is the only host plant for the Monarch butterfly for egg-laying and caterpillar rearing. It also serves as a food source for Monarch butterflies for egg-laying and caterpillar rearing. It also serves as a food source for Monarchs as well as many other pollinator species.
Drop off collected pods at the Soil & Water office, 771 East Main Street, Newark, OH by November 15th.
