Pond with EC wetland plants Monarch on Goldenrod Winter Woody Plant ID Class

Wetland plants prevent erosion, stop pollutants from entering the waterways and provide habitat for native species. We planted over 400,000 wetland plants by hand for restoration projects that we completed in 2017. The habitat will offer protection and food sources for Black ducks, Mallards, Diamond Back turtles, Monarch butterflies, and hundreds of species of creatures that share our surroundings.

EC formed the Mid-Atlantic Monarch Initiative (MAMI) to fill the need for an East Coast action plan to increase milkweed habitat. MAMI is working to activate conservation initiatives to benefit the Monarch butterfly. EC introduced the first MAMI program, Seed Stewards for Monarchs, to the public at their annual Spring Plant Sale in May 2018. The goal of the program is to increase milkweed seed inventory for the 2019 milkweed crop. Seed Steward volunteers receive free swamp milkweed (Asclepias incarnata) or butterfly milkweed (Asclepias tuberosa) plants to start a Monarch habitat garden. When the seed pods mature, volunteers share their seeds with Environmental Concern.

Join the Seed Steward volunteers! Contact Ally at for more information.

Coming soon!  Environmental Concern is currently in the process of creating a new website, scheduled to be launched in December.
