Pledge Summary

The City of Travelers Rest is working alongside Care Givers of Mother Earth for a year long initiative to focus on Monarch Butterflies in TR. We are supporting 9 of our 2nd grade teachers and classes do participate in the Mexico Mock butterfly project. Our TR High is also growing milkweed for a community wide planting initiative and gifting each 2nd grader a milkweed plant to take home to their mother for Mother's Day this year.

Community Spotlight

Action Items Committed for 2024

Communications and Convening

  • Issue a proclamation to raise awareness about the decline of the monarch butterfly and the species’ need for habitat. This proclamation must incorporate a focus on monarch conservation.
  • Launch or maintain a public communication effort to encourage residents to plant monarch gardens at their homes or in their neighborhoods. (If you have community members who speak a language other than English, we encourage you to also communicate in that language; Champion Pledges must communicate in that language.)

Program and Demonstration Gardens

  • Host or support a native seed or plant sale, giveaway or swap.
