ST. PAUL, MINN. — On Thursday, Nov. 17, the steering committee of the Monarch Joint Venture (MJV) officially accepted Missourians for Monarchs as a partner in its monarch butterfly conservation efforts.

The Monarch Joint Venture began in December 2008.

Based at the University of Minnesota and initiated in December 2008, the MJV brings together more than 50 partners from across the United States — including federal and state agencies, non-governmental agencies and academic programs — with the goal of protecting monarch populations and their migratory phenomena by implementing science-based habitat conservation and restoration measures in collaboration with multiple stakeholders.

By formally joining this effort, Missourians for Monarchs more closely ties its statewide pollinator conservation plan into nationwide ones, helping the state reach its goal of establishing 19,000 acres of pollinator habitat per year for the next 20 years in the Show-Me State.

  3. How can we stop the widespread use of herbicides? Perhaps we can promote the use of milkweed as an attractive roadside decoration. Lets not lose the beautiful monarch. Do deer eat milkweed?

  4. Ask your local road maintenance crews to not mow rights-of -way until October.
    Ask your local parks to plant pollinator habitat.
