Gardening for Monarchs

  • This informational flyer provides tips for how to create a garden that will attract monarchs and other butterflies and pollinators.

Plant Milkweed for Monarchs: Milkweed Information

  • This resource includes photos with habitat information for milkweed species common to each U.S. region. Find species known to be well-used by monarchs, and easy to establish in gardens and fields in your region.

About the Monarch Joint Venture

  • This handout describes what MJV is as a monarch conservation organization. This document explains how we work in these four areas to achieve our mission: partnership, habitat, education, and science.

Rearing Monarchs: Why or Why Not?

  • Motivation is high to save monarch populations, but informally rearing monarchs at home is not the way to do it. While captive rearing has been successful in laboratory settings for other at-risk species, this approach is not yet warranted for monarchs, and recent research illustrates that informal captive rearing by individuals may pose significant risks to monarchs, including disease and lower migration success.

Which Community Science Program is Right for You?

  • This handout provides information on monarch community science programs to help potential participants select a program that aligns with their interests and abilities. Pair this with the MJV Monarch Community Science handout for more context on the contribution community science programs have made to our knowledge of monarchs and their habitats. Thank you to all the programs listed and to the Wisconsin Monarch Collaborative for their contributions to this document's development.

Monarch Conservation: How to Get Involved

  • Monarchs are in serious decline and an all-hands-on-deck approach is needed to protect their amazing migratory phenomenon. Everyone can contribute to monarch conservation through habitat creation, educating others, participating in research, or financial contributions to conservation groups. This handout provides an overview of monarch conservation and what you can do to get involved in many ways to support monarchs.
