Program Mission

Working to guarantee the health and expansion of the monarch habitat.

The Milkweed for Monarchs program allows Bridging The Gap to work with both parks and citizens to help ensure the future of the monarch butterfly and pollinators by designing and installing monarch garden plots using native plants. BTG and its skilled partners are working to support long term health and expansion of monarch habitat. Monarchs and pollinators fill an essential role in growing food and other necessary plants to support our communities.
