The Coshocton SWCD is participating in the Ohio Pollinator Habitat Initiative (OPHI) to serve as a collection and drop off site for common and swamp milkweed seed pods from established plants. We will collect these until Oct. 30, and the seeds will be used to establish additional habitat for the Monarch butterfly in Ohio.

Seed pods should be dry and gray or brown in color. If the center seam pops with gentle pressure, they can be picked. Please collect your pods in brown lunch or grocery bags. DO NOT use plastic bags.

You can deliver to our office at 724 S. Seventh Street, Coshocton, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Questions: Call 740-622-8087, ext. 4.
