Registration is now open for the MiGreat Challenge, a City-hosted competition to create beautiful, monarch butterfly-friendly gardens.
Prizes will be given to the first, second and third place gardens. Prizes include an official certification from Monarch Watch as a monarch waystation, compost tea from Bobcat Blend, free plants of your choice from the Discovery Center and community recognition as the most beautiful monarch gardens in San Marcos.
“As monarch butterflies lose natural habitat as a result of development, they need substitute resources on their migration,” said Melani Howard, Watershed Manager for the City of San Marcos. “Monarchs fly across the continent every year, and the challenge is to make San Marcos a source of food and shelter as they make this journey.”
Registration for the competition will end May 25 and judges will begin inspecting registered gardens on June 1.
