We are now a Monarch City!
The City of Sanford is a Monarch City USA and has proclaimed June as Monarch Butterfly month on June 8, 2020. The City will promote Monarch Butterflies at various City functions throughout the year such as during Citizens Academy, Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, City of Sanford Tree Giveaway, and at the Sanford Community Garden.
If citizens are interested in planting a butterfly garden please contact the Parks & Recreations Department and ask for the Urban Forester Elizabeth Harkey. Her phone number is 407-782-3487 or 407-688-5000 (ext. 5416). Monarch and Florida Wildflower Butterfly Brochures will soon be available in the Parks Office.
