Nebraska Monarchs Native Plant Giveaway
Nebraska Monarchs is providing a great opportunity to bring back butterflies to Omaha. In a partnership with the Save Our Monarchs Foundation (SOM) and through a grant from the Nebraska Environmental Trust, Nebraska Monarchs is delivering free pollinator plants to families who are curious about adding a pollinator garden to their yard.
Plants for the giveaway are locally sourced from Midwest Natives Nursery, a greenhouse located in Lincoln, Nebraska that specializes in the sustainable cultivation of native perennial flowers and grasses. Becki Chandler, Education Specialist for Nebraska Monarchs, collaborated with Midwest Natives Nursery to provide a selection of plants that serve as food sources for pollinators, are aesthetically pleasing, and thrive in Omaha gardens.
