NORWALK, Conn. – The Norwalk Land Trust is replanting milkweed at the Farm Creek Preserve and is giving free seed packets to people willing seed their land in an effort to lure Monarch butterflies.

Monarchs lay their eggs only on milkweed, and their larvae feed only on milkweed.

Monarch butterflies make a 3,000-mile flight in the fall to their winter grounds in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of Mexico, covering 50 to 100 miles a day. They reproduce over four cycles in the spring and summer and return north, including to Connecticut.

Packets of seeds are available by e-mailing info@norwalklandtrust.org or through the NLT newsletter .
