Green Tip #168: Make A Home for Butterflies

Anyone who knows me knows I love butterflies. They are delicate and beautiful creatures yet they have such strength given the distances they travel across the globe. Unfortunately many butterflies are at risk of disappearing because of loss of habitat, pollution, etc. So if you are planning a garden this year, consider making it a butterfly friendly one so they know that they have somewhere to rest between their long voyages. Milkweed is a plant they love. Also, you can create shelter for them with an old box by cutting slits in it for them to pass through and leaving some twigs and branches inside for them to sleep on. Any of these options can cost you very little yet you will be helping a tiny critter in need.
