Monarch Butterflies

  • Much of a monarch butterfly’s (Danaus plexippus) life is spent migrating between the U.S., Mexico, and Canada-a journey that for some individuals can cover over 3,000 miles. However, this journey has become more dangerous and less successful for many because of deforestation, illegal logging, increased development, agricultural expansion, livestock raising, forest fires, and other threats to their migratory paths and summer and overwintering habitats.

  • The Partners Program is interested in conserving the monarch.  If you would like to partner with us, contact us.  The following are some ways we help the monarch.
    • We plant native milkweed and nectar plants on private lands using local sources.
    • We encourage schools and education organization to construct schoolyard habitats that benefit the monarch and other pollinators.
    • We avoid using insecticides and herbicides in monarch habitats.
