Village of Flossmoor pledges to preserve the monarch butterfly; Green Commission makes educational video

The Flossmoor Green Commission is working to help reinvigorate the Monarch butterfly population in Illinois with preparations for milkweed gardens, and an informational video for the public showing the stages of a butterfly that was prepared by a Homewood-Flossmoor High School student.

In February, at the suggestion of the Green Commission, former Flossmoor Mayor Paul Braun joined with more than 100 mayors nationwide who signed the National Wildlife Federation's Mayors' Monarch Pledge to stimulate the monarch butterfly population in Illinois.
