Monarch butterflies are at their lowest number in 100 years! You can help save them by not pulling this common weed!

Have you been looking for an excuse to keep you from pulling weeds? We've got it!

According to the Colorado News Connection, Monarch butterflies are on the decline because their habitat is shrinking, climate is changing and their heavy logging in the forest they spend the winter in.

So, how can you help?

Don't pull milkweed!

Why? Because their young depend on the plant to survive!

The Colorado Monarch Butterfly Monitoring Network is also looking for volunteers!

These people help document butterflies starting May 15th!
