Monarch Butterflies and Bees
About the Program
CRH Americas Materials, Inc. Stoneco Newport Quarry is located in southeast Michigan a few miles from Lake Erie. The project team has focused on attracting monarch butterflies and other pollinators through using native plants in the landscaping areas.
Practices and Impacts
- The.09 acre landscaped habitat garden began in 2016 and is designed to include all native plants.
- The project team designed the habitat garden to specifically target monarch butterflies and bees by providing native milkweed plants and other natives to provide for shelter. Observations have confirmed that multiple bees and other insects are using the garden and so far only one monarch has been spotted based on the current monitoring activity.
