Milkweed for Monarchs!
A huge THANK YOU to everyone who collected milkweed pods for the Ohio Pollinator Habitat Initiative during September & October. The Lucas SWCD office drop site alone collected over three pallets full of pods to be processed at the Lucas County Correctional Treatment facility for planting in ODOT right-of-ways. This is estimated to be over 1 million milkweed seeds! Also, congratulations to Clay High School Agriculture & Environmental Technologies students who won the Toledo Blade's School Contest by collecting 2,148 pods.
