CU students make milkweed balls to attract Monarch butterflies

LAWTON, OK (KSWO)- Students at Cameron University joined together today to help the environment by making milkweed balls.

The milkweed balls are being planted to attract Monarch butterflies and help persevere their population.

Universities all around the nation are participating in making the milkweed balls. Professor Terry Conley says this is their way of helping the Monarch Butterflies.

“We do this because of our personal interest in maintaining national populations with the plants and animals and it’s just one small way we can make a contribution in this area.”

The balls are simply balls of a mixture of potting soil and clay mixed with seeds of the Common Milkweed and allowed to dry. Once dried they will be shared with the community so they can be planted.
