The Windsor Monarch Project's (WMP) beautiful butterfly habitats have drawn enthusiastic praise from residents since their planting, but the habitats are now in need of new native, monarch-friendly plants to keep the butterflies coming back! To raise funds to replenish the habitats, the WMP, part of First Town Downtown, is launching the 2021 Upcycled Pollinator Planter Challenge to take place on July 2 - 13, 2021

Go to the Map Page.

The Upcycled Pollinator Planter Challenge is designed to engage residents and out-of-town visitors to view the creative planters at sponsors’ places of business in Windsor Center. For businesses or organizations who do not have a location in Windsor center, space will be made available to display their creations. Related activities are being planned now to draw attention to this unique artistic display.

Sponsors and designers can sign up now, by contacting info@firsttowndowntown.org for information. Sponsors can be matched with a creative designer or they can choose their own designer to create a unique planter for their business location.

Proceeds of the event will go to maintain the WMP's Riverwalk habitats.
