Monarchs across North America are disappearing. Pesticide and herbicide use, deforestation of their wintering grounds in Mexico and loss of milkweed in the United States are three important reasons for their decline.
The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is dedicated to conserving all pollinator species – including monarchs. To advance monarch conservation, we need more quality land management, more in depth research and more education for all citizens.
“Monarchs on a Mission” aims to educate Nebraskans about monarchs and milkweed by inviting them to use the lesson plans and other materials below.
Funding for this project provided by the Nebraska Environmental Trust as part of the Nebraska Natural Legacy Project.
Who should participate? Anyone working with students! Classroom teachers. Afterschool Programs. Church groups. Boy and Girl Scout Troops. Nature Centers.
HOW IT WORKS
Educators are invited to download the lesson plans and other materials below, and incorporate them into your classroom.
