Milkweed for Monarchs Collection

Welcome to the 2018 Milkweed Collection Page! We are in the process of finalizing details for the upcoming collection! Check back to this webpage or our social media pages in the coming weeks for an update!


We had a great turnout we had for the 2017 Milkweed for Monarchs collection! Thanks to all who participated, we had many wonderful collectors across the state!


What is the MNL Milkweed Collection?

Each late summer / early fall, MNL offers the public a chance to get out and collect some native seed (sorted by county of origin) in exchange for $5.00 per bag (bags will be available for pick up at our partner hubs), reused paper grocery bag (labeled with county of origin) , or 5 gallon bucket (buckets will be dumped into collection boxes so you don’t have to leave them behind!) full of ripe milkweed pods! Its a great opportunity to get outside and make some extra spending money in the process. Please visit our FAQ’s and info page below for tips and picking protocol to maintain healthy ecosystems.
