To help increase butterfly numbers, our club established a Certified Monarch Way Station. This garden is filled with native plants to support their life cycle such as Common and Swamp Milkweed, Purple Aster, Butterfly Weed, Coreopsis and Purple Coneflower and more. This garden is located behind the Veterans Memorial Garden in Roger Reynolds Municipal Park in Hilliard.
