We will continue accepting applications until we are sure all plants will be distributed or all funding is used. Applications are reviewed in chronological order, so "first come, first served."
Habitat restoration sites must be a minimum of two acres. Gardens and landscaped areas do not qualify. If your site fits these criteria and is located in one of the ecoregions listed below, please proceed with the application. We strive to propagate milkweeds from all ecoregions listed, but cannot guarantee this will happen.
To determine your ecoregion number, see: http://content.yardmap.org/explore/local-resources/ Enter the zip code of your site to obtain your ecoregion. If your zip code is not found, reload the page, check the "show all ecoregions" box, and zoom in on your area.
If your ecoregion is labeled "WAITING LIST" it means we have had requests for all of plants we are growing. A lot can happen between now and May. Some applicants may decline their award or, we could have extra plants. Please feel free to apply.
