As monarch butterflies started their multigenerational journey northward, the David Suzuki Foundation ran its second annual #gotmilkweed campaign in Toronto.
Participants helped monarchs by:
1. Buying a milkweed plant for their Toronto yard or balcony;
2. Purchasing a Got Milkweed kit, with plants and education materials; or
3. Donating to efforts to plant milkweed in parks and schoolyards on your behalf.
More than 5,000 plants were picked up at a Butterfly Block Party at Toronto's Christie Pits Park and were planted in gardens, schoolyards and parks throughout the city.
