The charismatic state butterfly of Minnesota: the monarch. Each summer, we see these beautiful creatures in our gardens and parks and communities, sharing its habitat with other insects, birds, mammals, and more. In Minnesota, we are proud of our connection to nature and taking care of the world around us. We know that when we see the connections between living things, our support of one small, beautiful butterfly helps so much more. With your help, the Monarch Joint Venture endeavors to foster relationships and build interconnectedness between people and nature.
The Monarch Joint Venture works every day in Minnesota and nationally, with our vast network of partners, to protect the monarch butterfly and its amazing migration. Now is the time for all of us to act, and we know that together we can make a difference! The collective actions taken by the Monarch Joint Venture’s diverse network - including you - help monarch butterflies, but more importantly, contribute to much broader environmental conservation needs.
You can act today by supporting the Monarch Joint Venture with a gift on Give to the Max Day 2021. The Monarch Joint Venture is working with concerned citizens like you, federal and state agencies, non-governmental organizations, businesses, and academic programs to scale up strategic conservation efforts. With a gift today you become connected to the vibrant Monarch Joint Venture community, collectively working to create, foster, and understand connections between all living things for a better tomorrow.
We need you to be part of the work. Please support monarch conservation today with a financial contribution. Every dollar, like every milkweed plant, makes a difference for monarchs. Your giving drives the four pillars of our work:
- Restoring healthy and abundant habitats for monarchs and more.
- Using science to inform our conservation and education efforts.
- Educating agencies, farmers, individuals, schools, and other groups about how they can help monarch populations thrive.
- Building alliances to strengthen our conservation actions and increase our collective impact.
