Nebraska Monarchs 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.

If you would like to receive native plants delivered in the Omaha metro area free of charge, click on the sign up button at the top of this article. Sign up must be completed by April 30th and is open to 250 households. Plants will be ready for delivery in mid-May. Participants will be notified by email two weeks prior to the expected delivery dates.
