More monarch butterflies than I could count! This site is a corporate Re-Ecology project in Du Page County, Illinois. It is a registered Monarch Waystation, and only a couple miles from ORD.
Here is a native plants corporate retrofit project (you can see why we say RE-ECOLOGY instead!) site in its second planting season on a rainy June day. The Echinacea pallida is glorious, and feeds the pollinators, then the seeds feed the birds, and even in the snow, the standing seed heads are stunning. This is a good example of our work.
