Without Milkweed Plants, Monarches Vanish, Students Tell City Council

Close to two dozen students lobbied the City Council to refrain from cutting down milkweed along the city’s right-of-way in order to protect the habitat of monarch butterflies.

The students, all Licking Heights North elementary fifth-graders, stepped into the council chambers on Monday to make their voices heard on behalf of the butterflies.

“Monarch butterflies are important to us because they are so delicate and beautiful and also because they are a part of nature and deserve a chance to live,” said student Hannah Pruitt.
