Monarch city

Monarch butterflies, honeybees and other beautiful pollinators have more places to land and feed, at Frogtown Green's prairie gardens. Pollinator-friendly plantings are maintained by volunteers at Monarch City, on the west end and the north side of the West Minnehaha Recreation Center, 685 Minnehaha Avenue.


On a summer day, the gardens are alive with bees, butterflies and birds! New gardens grew on the north and east corners of the park in 2020.

In 2021, Monarch City will be complete, encircling the Rec Center with thousands of feet of prairie plants and pollinator habitat.
