About this Monarch Project:
The Oklahoma Alliance for Geographic Education (OKAGE) located at the University of Oklahoma in Norman partnered with Asher Public School to create a dark sky – friendly pollinator garden. During the Spring 2023 semester, Asher Public School’s fourth grade students have learned about the impacts of light pollution on pollinators and bird and monarch butterfly migration through Oklahoma. This garden was sited not only where the plants will receive adequate sunlight during the day, but equally importantly, enough darkness at night.
