This week on Earth Day, a coalition of Illinois agencies revealed plans and unveiled a new pollinator habitat near the Illinois Department of Agriculture building at the Illinois State Fairgrounds. The purpose is to preserve Monarch butterflies.
Also, a groundbreaking ceremony was held for a new pollinator habitat at the Fairgrounds. Monarch butterflies are important because they help pollinate plants that produce fruit and important food that we consume.
