If you’re here, you’re probably a nature lover, like me. Or maybe you want to convince someone else to be one. This is a great place to start.
The purpose of this site is to educate, and to promote conservation. The information you need will be listed on my Resource page. When the Junior Crusader pages are complete, you will have a roadmap of activities to help save the monarch, together with levels of achievement and rewards.
Raising monarch butterflies is an excellent Introduction to Nature project for families, classrooms and youth groups. It starts with a hunt for caterpillars, and ends with the release of a miracle less than a month later. All sorts of discoveries abound along the way, while happy memories of friends and family expeditions are created.

Monarch Butterflies in the Pacific Northwest
The realization that our western Monarchs are in greater peril, at least currently, than their eastern counterparts, has been embraced by many people and entities in the western US in the past year or so. Prominent among these is 'Western Monarch Advocates' (WMA), a bold group of concerned enthusiasts and scientists, whose aim is draw people together from all walks of life in the west, for the betterment of Monarch butterfly populations. One of the first actions of this group was to hold a highly successful conference in Monterey, California earlier this year, which attracted a unique blend of professionals and enthusiasts. The most recent action of WMA is to launch an exciting new website which should become the home for all things 'Western Monarch'. Please check it out and visit it often for regular updates on how we are all helping to improve the future for Monarch butterflies in the western US.
