Wayzata aspiring to become a butterfly-friendly town

A team of Wayzata residents and members of the business community have created The Butterfly Effect, a movement to make Wayzata a butterfly-friendly town by establishing butterfly gardens. Butterfly gardens are gardens with plants chosen specifically to attract butterflies.

The group has a mission to start the effort by bringing back the Monarch, Minnesota's state butterfly, and to eventually establish Wayzata as a center for butterfly-related activities.

Those interested in becoming part of the movement may contact Sherry Machen at or at 952-476-8441.
