Central Illinois Monarch Waystations - CI Monarch Jaunt

In July 2023, Katelynn from Green View Companies in Dunlap, IL began organizing the Central Illinois Monarch Jaunt. This is an initiative created and funded by Green View Companies in collaboration with Monarch Watch, the Monarch Waystation Program, Monarch Joint Venture, and other central Illinois organizations. Green View is a family-owned plant nursery, garden center, and landscaping company that has served the central IL community since the 1950s. Since they were already a Monarch Waystation, they wanted to promote awareness of other waystations in the area. From this, a "Central Illinois Monarch Jaunt" brochure was created to allow people to see the different waystations in our community. 


The idea is simple. We want everyone to be able to visit the waystations and see the impact that they are making in conserving the monarch population. This is a self-guided initiative, with no set date or time. Visitors can pick up a map from any participating location which includes a list of all other participating locations as well as pertinent information about monarchs and their habitats. Monarch Waystations are a valuable educational experience and our intention is to educate the public on the value of waystations and encourage others to add their own waystations.

An online map of the central Illinois monarch waystations is linked here to make it easier to locate the waystations.
