Join us for May’s First Thursday, where you’ll explore how the conservation of monarchs and pollinators is essential for the preservation of local biodiversity and our ecosystems!



Join us for an event that highlights the critical relationship between monarchs, pollinators, and the health of our environment. Our expert speakers will discuss the essential role these species play in sustaining local biodiversity and how their populations are threatened by habitat loss, climate change, and other factors. You’ll learn about the practical steps you can take to contribute to conservation efforts, from promoting pollinator-friendly practices to supporting the restoration of natural habitats. This event is an excellent opportunity to deepen your understanding of the connection between monarchs, pollinators, and the health of our environment, and to become an informed and active participant in preserving the beauty and diversity of our natural world.
