Students, staff and community partners built a beautiful butterfly shaped garden at our school as a landing station and habitat for the Monarch butterfly.
Monarch Waystation and Certified (OK and National) Wildlife Habitat
Wildflower/pollinator plot along Hwy 75 just north of 61st St. exit. Initially planted 1 acre plot in 2006 in cooperation with Oklahoma Native Plant Society Color Oklahoma grant. We have expanded the site to nearly 1.75 acres since that time.
Entrance is into the Stoney Creek neighborhood and will be listed and posted on the Nextdoor app.
Pollinator habitats broadcast throughout the farm.
This is a Community Garden in Duncan, OK. There are hoop houses, green houses, and raised garden beds. Flowers, vegetables, and herbs are grown here together. Lots of butterflies.

Monarch Butterfly way station
We have planted many Oklahoma-native plants here in our Cross Timbers-habitat neighborhood in east Edmond. Examples include Butterfly weed, Swamp milkweed, Indian Blanket, Little bluestem, Pale purple coneflower, Rattlesnake master, Giant coneflower and many others. These plants compliment the native Blackjack oaks on our property. We have consistently seen monarchs, especially in the fall, stopping through and have had caterpillars on our milkweed the past two years.
The Crow Creek Meadow is the return of an urban developed site to a natural prairie. It changes a repetitive flood buyout block of properties from a closely mowed Bermuda grass area into a meadow that supports Storm water filtration and infiltration and native wildlife. Wildlife consists of birds, small mammals, insects, and pollinators. The site is a registered Monarch Waystation and includes its official signage.
The Myriad Botanical Garden hosts a variety of native and pollinator friendly plants all across the outdoor grounds. There are specific pollinator garden areas in the Prairie Garden as well as the Children’s Garden. The majority of plants are labeled.
