Des Moines Mayor T. M. Franklin Cownie recently became the first in Iowa to pledge his support for monarch butterfly recovery as part of the National Wildlife Federation Mayor’s Monarch Pledge. Now, more than 600,000 people in the greater Des Moines area can help  create a future filled with monarchs. Your town can join in the fight to save the butterfly, too.
