Goodwill giving away seed packets to help monarch butterflies

STERLING – Goodwill Industries of Northern Illinois is giving away milkweed seed packets in Sterling and its 10 other locations Saturday, Earth Day, in an effort to help save the monarch butterfly.

The Sterling location will be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. at 2216 E. Fourth St.

Milkweed plants are the only source of food for the monarch caterpillar. The plant and the butterfly population both are down about 90 percent, experts say.

Goodwill also has stores in Freeport, Ottawa, DeKalb and Rockford.

Go to goodwillni.org for more store locations, and to saveourmonarchs.org for information on monarchs.
