Become a Butterfly Hero

You can be a hero by staying home this spring!

Pledge to plant some food and help butterflies while you are at home. Gardening for butterflies and other pollinators is a great way to get outside in your own backyard.


You can still pledge to be a Butterfly Hero and receive tips for gardening on your windowsill, porch, patio or backyard!

Schools, scouts, nature centers, places of worship, and other community groups, along with families, are encouraged to pledge to help monarch butterfly populations.

Over the last five years, over 200,000 pledges have been received to help restore monarch butterfly populations by planting milkweed that monarchs need to survive and thrive. This represents more than 850,000 individual heroes. Join the movement and take the National Wildlife Federation’s Butterfly Heroes pledge to help save monarchs!
