Collect milkweed, help monarchs

The Ohio Pollinator Habitat Initiative (OPHI) along with the Ohio Soil and Water Conservation Districts have organized a statewide milkweed pod collection to help the habitat of the monarch butterfly. Everyone is encouraged to collect the pods from established plants and drop them off from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, until Oct. 30 at the Columbiana County Soil and Water Conservation District Office in Salem. The seeds should be picked when the inside is brown. Do not collect pods when seeds are white or cream colored. If the center seam of the pod pops with gentle pressure, they can be picked.
