Game and Parks to give away free milkweed seeds in Norfolk, Nebraska

NORFOLK, Neb. (AP) — People who want to help preserve monarch butterflies can obtain free milkweed seed pods through the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.

The pods, seeding instructions and monarch educational information will be available while supplies last at Game and Parks’ Northeast District Office, 2201 N. 13th St. in Norfolk.

Milkweed is the host plant for the monarch. Monarchs lay eggs only on milkweed and milkweed is the only plant monarch caterpillars will eat.

Scientists say the monarch population has drastically declined over the past 20 years.
