Young and old we worked side-by-side and the enthusiasm to save as many as possible was inspirational. Much love and thanks to those who were able to join us❤️ ... See MoreSee Less

Hey Friends, We have dozens of beautiful creatures that need our help! There is a giant patch of milkweed just up the street from our office full of Monarch caterpillars. The problem is the leaves are stripped and many are perched on dead stalks without food. Tomorrow Friday Aug 23 at noon we would love to have help transferring the caterpillars to thriving milkweed plants just feet from where they are currently located. If you have a soft spot for these delicate creatures and an hour or two to help, we would be honored to work with you to save as many as we can. You don't need any tools....just a smile and a kind heart. SULLIVAN ❤️ CARES. ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you so much for helping my husband and I out! Being from Hawaii, we don’t have a native milkweed so I haven’t experienced this whole process and seeing them trying to cross the road broke my heart. This photo was taken several weeks ago when there was an abundance of milkweed and monarchs everywhere!

I currently have 15 that we have brought in and are hatching out! Our first one hatched this morning! The kids love watching the process and it helps protect them from the birds picking them off! It’s a great learning experience for children!

thank you all so much for doing this. i so wish i could be there to help. i would be there in a heartbeat. ❤️

This is wonderful thank you for doing this. I live away also.🙁

We’ll be there. We have milkweed at our place and can bring some here.

I wish I could be there, but I moved to Colorado.

Thank you Rob.

Anyone wanting to raise caterpillars in a classroom needs to make sure they have a source of the right kind of milkweed for them to eat until they create their chrysalids.

I had to do this in my yard I had over 200 caterpillars and they ate all my milkweed so been taking them down the road

Oh my kids would love this! But I'm thinking my two year old might get a little crazy and squish them 😕

I'll help. Do we meet up at the town office at noon?

I know my son has milkweed on his property on Farmedge Rd in Sullivan. You can put some there if there's enough.

Would you be willing to let someone take a few for a classroom?

I think I can be there!

If u run out of ppl or milkweed I have a legit ton on our runway its lined as well as alot of our pastures. Can get sum or drop of sum caterpillars. But I'm in Charleston. I can drive to u if needed.

Please keep us updated on if you have enough people to help. I am over on MDI but if you don't have enough helpers I will come over to help.

I'd be there in a heartbeat if we weren't out on Monhegan where I have been mesmerized all week by their Monarch population! ✌🏼

I’ll come help

❤️

They are already butterflies and they don’t know enough to fly a few feet to get food, I know I get confused easily but I must be missing something critical here in this conversation...

I can help, just need to know where and when

This. Is. Everything.

Therea still some milkweed here at Sorrento landfill

Do you still need help with these
