Monarch Habitat Project

Pollinators are responsible for assisting over 80% of the world’s flowering plants to reproduce. That makes it pretty simple–we need pollinators to sustain our ecosystems and natural resources.

One of the most remarkable, vital, and well-loved pollinators is the monarch butterfly. Our native ecosystems have co-evolved with monarch butterflies and rely on monarchs for reproduction. But the monarch population has declined more than 80% over the past two decades.

That’s why Conservation Corps Minnesota & Iowa has launched the new Monarch Habitat Project. The Monarch Habitat Project is designed to gather the data we need to protect and restore vital habitat that supports monarchs and sustains our native ecosystems.
