"Monarch Mentors" provides opportunities for nature enthusiasts to learn about:
habitat restoration in order to re-establish healthy numbers of monarchs & pollinators and then to help educate the public to plant native milkweed species and nectar-rich plants.
This seems the only way for the low monarch populations to return to previous healthy numbers.
Habitat. Habitat. Habitat.
The definition of "mentoring" says it all:
the act of teaching, guiding or advising someone seeking knowledge.
Sharing the immense importance of
"the little things that run the world."
three main goals:
(1) Maintaining this website to help community-minded leaders to access a slide show that has a slide-by-slide printed narration to share with civic groups
(2) Helping others understand the importance of milkweeds and nectar plants and how to locate them
for local plantings
(3) Taking our monarch conservation slide show into the school classrooms that request them
