The Problem

Monarch endangerment, educating the community on the importance of pollinators, embracing diversity in our program and community. Our Roots and Shoots program addresses rekindling compassion for humans, animals, insects, plants and fungi in our environment. We will address these issues by educating others about the importance of Monarch Butterflies as pollinators, partners in our ecosystem, and their beauty and awe.

Our Plan

We start off by collecting monarch eggs and care for them in an enclosure. We will document their changes and release them into the wild. We have put together hands on classes and zoom PowerPoints that are presented at the local library, schools, senior centers and garden clubs in the past, and are being welcomed back to these venues to present on this program. Through the miracle transformation of the monarch butterfly, we will restore hope to youth and seniors, teach responsibility and compassion for others, and address food insecurity focusing on the importance of pollinators in our food production.
