Leave your Mark on Mesquite’s Butterfly Trail

Keep Mesquite Beautiful (KMB) invites you to participate in an exciting opportunity to enhance one of Mesquite’s natural treasures, the Paschall Park Butterfly Trail. 

In cooperation with the City of Mesquite Parks and Recreation Department, KMB is working with experts in the native plant field to broaden the wildflower meadows, enhance the show of flowers, and increase the quantity of butterflies visiting the area. 

Your financial support helped us become a Certified Monarch Waystation by Monarchwatch.org and a Certified Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation.  Additionally, we participate in the Mayor's Monarch Pledge program.

New signs throughout the trail highlighting the symbiotic relationship between native plants, wildlife, and people will provide an educational opportunity for visitors to learn not only about our butterfly population, nectar and host plants, but also how our behaviors affect their habitat. 

When you make a tax-deductible donation to Keep Mesquite Beautiful for the wildlife habitat, we'll use it to preserve butterfly habitats, increase no-mow areas in the city, and enhance education opportunities for the public.  

Additionally, the Trails Committee of Keep Mesquite Beautiful's Board of Directors can use your help in maintaining planted areas and reducing invasive species.  Contact our office today to see how you can be a friend to our butterflies!
