Kids love butterflies? Add them to your garden for free

If you take a pledge to plant a garden that offers a food source for butterflies and pollinators at your house, your school or in your neighborhood, the National Wildlife Federation will give you a Butterfly Heroes Garden Starter kit, if you’re one of the first 45,000 people to take the pledge.

The kits include native seed packets provided by Botanical Interests Inc. that are right for your area and and a step-by-step guide to building a butterfly garden.

Take the pledge at nwf.org. You also have to upload a photo of yourself making the American Sign Language sign for butterfly.
