Get your garden butterfly-ready!
Butterflies need you!
We can all make a positive impact on butterflies regardless of where we live. Local butterfly gardens are critical to bringing back plants that feed and protect these critical pollinators.
3 critical items every Butterfly garden needs
- At least three different native caterpillar food plants must be grown, preferably more than one plant of each selected species. NABA encourages the use of plant species native to your area.
- At least three different native butterfly nectar sources must be grown, preferably more than one plant of each selected species.
- The use of pesticides is discouraged. Pesticides can kill butterflies as well as other important pollinators.
If your Garden meets these 3 criteria you are on your way to getting your Butterfly Garden certified as part of our BUTTERFLY GARDEN CERTIFICATION PROGRAM.
