Monarch Butterfly Garden for Jean Sweeney Park
The Jean Sweeney Open Space Park Fund and Alameda Recreation & Parks Department are working together to create a Monarch Butterfly Garden in the East end of the Jean Sweeney park.
ARPD summer program Operation Green Sweep provides youth an opportunity to work in Alameda's parks. On June 30th, they worked to spread the dirt for the Monarch Butterfly habitat.
Monarch Butterflies make Alameda their home and even winter here after migrating from inland California.
The project will require funding and volunteers from the community to make the garden a success. A Go-Fund-Me page has been created for donations. Donations can also be made from the "Donate" page on this website. All donations made toward the Monarch Butterfly Garden are tax deductable.
Get more information about the Monarch Butterfly garden here.
