Milkweed vs. Monarch

Pollinator conservation is in the minds of many right now, including EALT! We are working to protect pollinators in our stewardship work. Many types of insects are pollinators, including butterflies. Monarchs have an interesting relationship with milkweed, their main food source. Just as in many relationships in nature, there is conflict and balance. 

Check out our butterfly and moth brochures to learn how to identify some of these pollinators in the Edmonton region.
