This year, five Kentucky state parks, including John James Audubon State Park, Buckhorn Lake State Park and Kentucky Dam State Park, have registered as certified monarch waystations.

Waystations provide milkweed habitat and other resources for migrating Monarch butterflies, currently being considered for protection under the Endangered Species Act.

The Kentucky Garden Club and Kentucky State Parks have been working since 2013 to create waystations across the state. With this year’s additions, there are now 18 certified parks.
