Butterfly Garden Locations

Through the National Wildlife Federation's (NWF) Mayors' Monarch Pledge, cities are committing to create habitats and educate citizens about how they can help preserve these butterflies. KKB and Mayor Brian Johnson are proud participants in the NWF Mayor's Monarch Pledge, which included issuing vouchers to residents to purchase milkweed and other nectar-producing plants. Thank you to Stegall's Nursery for their generous support of this program, which resulted in 29 butterfly gardens in the City of Kennedale!
