Milkweed seeds floating through the airHave you seen Monarch butterflies still flying around Brunswick? We have! Most of the butterflies from Maine are on their journey to Mexico. The first wave of butterflies is expected to arrive at their overwintering sites soon.

Perhaps you’ve seen milkweed seeds drifting through the air around town. The seeds take flight in their own mini-migration to hopefully fertile ground.

We are so grateful that a dedicated library volunteer has harvested enough milkweed seeds from their yard in Brunswick to share with other Monarch lovers!

Please stop by the Youth Services Desk to pick up a packet of seeds for your own garden.

Milkweed is the only plant that Monarchs lay eggs on. It’s the only thing that Monarch caterpillars can eat. Help the Monarchs thrive next summer!
