The evidence is clear that we are losing insects around the globe at an alarming rate. Consider bumble bees alone: 28 percent of species in North America are considered threatened, 41 percent in Mesoamerica, and 23.5 percent in Europe. The story is similar for the world's butterflies, beetles, and aquatic insects. Even widely found and well-known species such as the monarch butterfly are experiencing steep declines.

All over the world, small farmers are being forced off their land to make way for corporate agriculture, writes GRAIN - and it's justified by the need to 'feed the world'. But it's the small farmers that are the most productive, and the more their land is grabbed, the more global hunger increases. W...

Approximately three quarters of the world’s major food crops require or benefit from animal pollination. This includes many fruits and vegetables such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, currants, plums, apples, sweet cherries, pears, watermelons, cantaloupes, cucumbers, squashes, and tomatoes.

Happy first day of fall! I want to take this opportunity to remind you that leaves and other “litter” are essential shelter for hibernating bumble bee queens and the larvae of numerous butterfly and moth species. Many of these species will happily tuck into a leaf or mulch pile, so you likely already have some nearby. As an added bonus, leaf and mulch piles will also attract beneficial insects like lady beetles, so they’ll already be perfectly situated to attack aphids in your garden when spring arrives!

Would you like to help the monarch trail? Here's how you can do your part.

Friends of the Monarch Trail

Would you like to help the monarch trail? Here's how you can do your part.

Dear Friends,
It’s that time of year again! We need your help in collecting milkweed seeds!
In order to preserve the monarch butterfly and its amazing migration, we need more milkweed throughout the County, State and the entire Country! Chip Taylor, founder of “Monarch Watch” has launched a campaign: “Bring Back the Monarchs”--and it all starts with seeds. We too are collecting seed for our local projects.

Here’s how:
We are now targeting most species of milkweed seed: swamp milkweed, butterfly milkweed, common milkweed and whorled milkweed.
Collect the pods in paper bags—and bring them to the collection site: (Barb and Dick’s Wildflower Flower Shop, 12326 W. Watertown Plank Rd.)There is a collection bin on the west side of the building.
Please use a separate bag for each milkweed species. The seeds you collect are used in our region so we need the following information on each bag: Your name, date of collection, county and state of collection (zip code) and species of milkweed (i.e. common, swamp, etc.).
We encourage you to recruit your class, school, scout group, neighborhood association etc. to organize a collection project. The end of September through October is the best time to collect pods.
When, Where and How to collect Milkweed Seed Pods:
When the pods are first beginning to split (ripe but as yet to open pods should split upon touch and the seeds should be brown or “browning up”). Do not collect pods in which the seeds are white, cream colored or pale.

Be sure to obtain permission before collecting on private property or federal, state or county properties. Be safe and please do not collect along busy highways.

Q.) How much should I collect?
Collect as much as you can! Many pounds of milkweed seeds are needed for seed mixes used in roadside or landscape restoration. Two to four onion bags of pods will yield about one pound of seeds.

**********ADVISORIES**********
Milkweed sap can damage your eyes.
The initial irritation is a bit painful followed by a cloudiness of the cornea which can take a week to clear up. You don’t want this to happen to you or anyone who works with you. Wear gloves while collecting milkweed pods and avoid contacting your face, or region of the eyes, with the gloves. Wash your hands carefully after handling milkweed pods. Should milkweed sap get into your eyes or that of a fellow collector, seek medical attention immediately.
Once collected—we will dry them and hold a Milkweed Shucking event so everyone can come help separate the seeds from the fluff. This is REALLY fun! The “Milkweed Shucking” date is Sunday, October 20th 1 - 3 pm (Weather permitting) at the Monarch Trail (visit our website for a map). Look for the colorful flags and you will find us and the fluff! Please follow us on Facebook and visit our website at www.theMonarchTrail.org for updates.

Thank you for your support!
