The Monarch Butterfly is in Trouble

The monarch butterfly is one of the most recognizable species in North America and it’s in trouble. Numbers of monarchs have decreased significantly over the last 20 years, but together we can save the monarch. Check the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Save the Monarch Butterfly page to see what you can do.


The West Michigan Butterfly Association is always in need of volunteers. Contact any member of the board of directors found on the information page if you can help.
