Webinar Title: Urban Monarch Butterfly Conservation
Description: We often think of urban areas as dead zones for wildlife habitat. However, cities can play a surprising role in conserving monarchs and pollinators. In this webinar, we’ll hear success stories and how you can get involved in conserving monarchs in cities from the Field Museum’s Urban Monarch Conservation program, the Million Pollinator Garden Challenge, and the National Wildlife Federation’s Mayor’s Monarch Pledge.
