A non-refundable application fee of $16 is required for each habitat you would like to certify - this helps offset the costs associated with processing your application (including adding your habitat to the online
registry) and also helps support Monarch Watch's conservation efforts.
Please note that you can also purchase a weatherproof sign to identify your monarch habitat as an official Monarch Watch waystation here separately after completing your registration or opt for the certification and sign bundle.

Shelter - Plant Density
All monarch life stages need shelter from predators and the elements. In the context of a Monarch Waystation, shelter is provided by the variety of the plants and the density, or closeness, of the plantings. Please estimate the number of milkweed and nectar plants (combined) per square yard (3’ x 3’ area) in your habitat. Depending on the species and size of the plants, densities of 2-10 plants per square yard are probably the most effective. Please select the number of plants per square yard in your habitat.
Host Plants for Monarchs - Milkweeds (check all that are present in your habitat)
Nectar Plants - Annuals or Biennials (check all that are present in your habitat)
Nectar Plants - Perennials (check all that are present in your habitat)
