Training Opportunity to Protect Monarch Butterfiles May 8-9 in Des Moines

Monarch Joint Venture and University of Minnesota Extension are offering a training opportunity May 8-9 in Des Moines. Registration is required and space is limited.
 
The monarch population has declined dramatically over the last twenty years. To protect these beautiful, iconic pollinators, it is crucial that we understand their distribution, habitat availability, and habitat quality. Citizen scientists, land managers, and researchers are vital to this effort; researchers alone cannot cover enough ground to capture the information that is needed. We need an all-hands-on-deck approach to conserving and monitoring monarchs! Your participation will aid in conserving monarchs and their migratory phenomenon, and will inform local, regional, and national conservation efforts.
 
Participants at the workshop will learn how to count monarchs and carefully describe their habitats as well as connect with fellow citizen scientists and conservationists.
