Drivers on Interstate Highway 35 in Texas may soon be sharing their rest area with monarch butterflies. The project and associated Federal funding is the result of a cooperative agreement between the Society and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS), in cooperation with TxDOT.
Under the terms of the cooperative agreement with the USFWS, the Native Plant Society of Texas will design and build the gardens and maintain them for a period of five years. The gardens already have some infrastructure built by TxDOT, including an irrigation system. (2015) by Bill Hopkins writing for the Native Plant Society of Texas.
