Monarch Habitat

Pollinator Planting

In an effort to support the California Monarch butterfly and other pollinators, Friends of Pinole Creek Watershed applied for and was granted a California Monarch and Pollinator Habitat Kit through the Xerces Society.

This kit contains 85 woody and herbaceous transplants (including milkweed) and native bunch grasses. The riparian hedgerow plants are well-suited to our local ecosystem.

The riparian monarch habitat kit plants will be planted on EBMUD watershed lands on November 5th, 2022. We welcome the public to participate in site preparation, planting and watering.

Many volunteers will be needed to help with plant care until the plants are established.
