Monarch Butterfly Flashbacks

They flutter around pollinating our wildflowers and are easily detectable with their iconic bright orange wings with black outlines and white dots. I can remember running around chasing those giant butterflies in my backyard as a kid, acting as eager as Spongebob trying to catch a jellyfish.

You can now flutter with the butterflies as you drive around. The Texas Parks & Wildlife Department just released a new license plate that features four Monarch butterflies on a white background, the state of Texas in the upper left-hand corner, and the words "KEEP TEXAS WILD" clear as day in bright red ink.

Costs, Fees, and Where to Purchase

Each plate will cost $30 in addition to any registration fees. Shout out to TPWD because $22 out of the $30 will be donated to help fund native wildlife management, research, and conservation projects. Basically, you get a sweet license plate, AND you're helping Texas wildlife; #GoodDeedoftheDay.
