Habitat Restoration and Monarch Butterflies
Members of Public Works, a Natural Areas contractor, and volunteers from the community are working together to add native plant diversity and make site improvements throughout Vernon Hills, and our working to provide an ecosystem for pollinators.
First, Milkweed was planted in Village ponds and the Arbortheatre naturalized areas. Milkweed will also be planted at the following sites this year:
Centennial Pond shoreline buffer
Arbortheatre Natural Area (former wild rose garden)
VHAC pond shoreline
Village Hall pond shoreline
Next, BD Medical Group helped seed the Arbortheater naturalized areas with a pollinator mix.
And, an interpretive sign was installed at the Arbortheater which provides information on the decline of Monarch Butterflies and solutions to the issue.
Thanks to Vernon Hills Public Works Engineering Landscaping Technician Josh Hansen for leading our efforts and all our volunteers for helping to prevent the decline of Monarch Butterfly populations.
The Village of Vernon Hills will continue to mindful with pesticide usage, work toward eliminating invasive species, and restore areas to their native state.
