Stations, and Monarch Butterflies Swarm
Oxley Nature Center
40 Monarchs that
were raised from eggs found locally were released on July 29 to
promote the Monarch Initiative of Tulsa, creating habitat for
Monarchs in the Tulsa area. Over 125 people attended the
release, as well as three TV stations!

The Monarch Initiative of Tulsa
aims to increase the number of Monarch butterflies, whose
population has nose-dived in the past 20 years. It is easy to
do: plant milkweed and nectar plants, provide water and quit
using pesticides and herbicides. Monarchs pass through Oklahoma
every spring on their way north from roosting grounds in Mexico
and every fall when they return from the northern U.S. Go to monarchwatch.org
to learn how to create a certified Monarch Waystation. Your site
could be on an International Registry! Initiative members
include the Oxley Nature Center, Riverfield Country Day School,
Tulsa Botanic Garden, Tulsa Garden Center, Tulsa Audubon
Society, Oklahoma Chapter of the Nature Conservancy, Tulsa Urban
Wilderness Coalition and Tulsa Zoo.
