Public Parks in Central Ohio as a Home for Milkweed

With Continue the Flight! our hope is to further engage, connect and inspire others to learn more about the conservation of monarch habitat and ways to get involved!

The EPN is excited to feature the research and service work of Cade Capper, environmental science degree with a specialization in ecosystem restoration in The Ohio State University’s School of Environment and Natural Resources, to investigate the potential of bioretention cells serving as reproductive habitats for monarch butterflies in urban areas. Cade’s work seeks to help the Blueprint Columbus (Ohio, USA) project turn their raingardens into multifunctional ecosystems, serving to both improve water quality and provide essential habitat for monarch butterflies and other pollinators.
