Kids from Vermont & Mexico Restore Monarch Habitat
Restoring Summer Habitat in Vermont
Restoring Winter Habitat in Mexico
The Oyamel Forest
Hands Across the Border
The monarch is a symbol of cross-border cooperation throughout North America, as it migrates through all 3 countries, Mexico, the USA and Canada. The same monarchs we’re seeing now in Vermont will soon migrate to Michoacan, Mexico. There they will spend the winter on oyamel trees in the Mexican forest, as their ancestors have done for thousands of years. The future of this astonishing migration rests in our hands and your hands but perhaps most importantly in the hands of the next generation. We want to give them as much help as possible.

Together Kids from Vermont & Mexico are Planting 550 Trees to Restore the Monarch’s Winter Habitat
We’re sending thanks to Eileen Ash, the United Church of Hinesburg, VT and the kids & parents who made this monarch conservation project possible. Their generous contribution to Forests for Monarchs has enabled founder, Jose Luis Alvarez and his volunteers to plant 550 oyamel tree seedlings in the monarchs’ over-wintering area. Muchas gracias!
