About the Mountain State Monarch and Pollinator Partnership
West Virginia’s state butterfly, the Monarch, is disappearing from our state and from across the country. The Mountain State Monarch and Pollinator Partnership is working to bring the Monarch back to the Mountain State through the cooperative efforts of people from a variety of organizations, agencies and industries. Join us as we provide workshops, facilitate habitat improvement efforts, collaborate on studies, promote outreach events, and nurture a cooperative conservation atmosphere to succeed at keeping West Virginia’s Monarch off the Endangered Species List.
Monarch and pollinator conservation efforts in West Virginia are accomplished by many people and organizations: from families planting flowers and milkweed in their backyards to acres of habitat on gas right-of-ways and corporate campuses. All West Virginians, and people who enjoy the sight of busy pollinators or of monarchs winging south in the fall, can make a difference to bring back our state butterfly and enhance the work pollinators do in our Mountain State.
