Engaging Farmers and Other Landowners to Support Monarch Butterfly and Pollinator Conservation
Operational Plan: 2015 - 2016
The overarching goal of this project is to promote habitat restoration and enhancement in key breeding grounds and migration corridors of the monarch butterfly in Canada, Mexico, and the United States. As much of the breeding habitat loss has been in agricultural fields, this project will reach out to agriculture communities, organizations, and agencies in all three countries to provide practical, tested guidance about how to create and maintain monarch-friendly restoration plantings. This will also contribute to the conservation of other native pollinators on land under agricultural production.
