Our program will review the monarch butterfly life history, causes of the current population crisis, the roles for community scientists and how we each can help offer a safer healthy future for this amazing butterfly.
Mia Monroe is a volunteer for Xerces Society and has helped coordinate the Western Monarch Count for its entire 25 years! She is also a National Park Service ranger, on the steering committee of OneTam and participates in the Marin Monarch Working Group.
Ed Nute, Marin Audubon Society board member, took the initiative to offer monarchs such chances at MAS properties at Deer Isle and Bahia by establishing a milkweed meadow. He will share the amazing experiences he and other volunteers have had as they grow up a successful monarch nursery amidst drought, pests and more!
