We have close to 3000 Milkweed plants that need to be planted this spring. Come on out and help the Monarch butterflies. The first planting date has been posted on our Facebook page and website event page. There will be multiple opportunities at multiple locations including our Kaniksu Unit (near Deer Lake) and the Cusick unit in the Pend Oreille river valley. It a good way to learn about Monarch and see some new locations on the Refuge.
