OHIO, Cuyahoga County SWCD – The Cuyahoga County Soil and Water Conservation District and districts statewide are participating in common milkweed seed collection, which runs through Oct. 31. The effort is meant to increase monarch butterfly habitat.

Amy Roskilly, conservation education program manager at the Cuyahoga County facility, said the seed “is used for habitat across the state,” although a percentage of the processed seed is returned to the district for public distribution.
