Help Save Monarch Butterflies

Photographer made this available under a Creative Commons License

On this side of the continent, we have the western Monarch and it seems that both eastern and western varieties are under threat because of massive loss of habitat brought on by modern farming methods, especially the use of Roundup Ready corn and soybeans.

So, the call is out for individuals anywhere in the monarch range to provide what they can by way of "way stations" for these exceptional migrators.
