SUMMER 2020 UPDATE
We are sorry to report that there have only been 3 official sightings of Monarchs this summer in our great state. Colleagues have reported with 3 more sightings in the Reno area. This is the first year ever that I have not personally seen one myself by now. All I can say is, please keep planting local native milkweed so that Nevada will be ready when the Western Monarchs do come our way. Californians are working hard and I know their efforts will help the population, therefore we need to be ready with viable habitat! Remember the best time to plant is in the fall! And keep looking for Monarchs through the fall and report your sightings. See links below.
We are saving Monarch Butterflies by planting and helping you plant native Milkweed plants (Asclepias). Please register your waystations with Monarch Watch at Kansas University.
We are participating and asking others to participate in Citizen Science to further understand Western Monarch Butterflies.
We provide education and support to create Monarch Butterfly and other pollinator habitat.
