This event can be attended in person or virtual
The Monarch Sister Schools Program was created by the educational nonprofit Natural Partners to involve students in a real environmental problem: the ongoing destruction of Monarch butterflies’ habitat in the U.S. and Canada (driven by herbicide use on farms) and of their over-wintering habitat in Mexico (due to illegal logging), resulting in a precipitous decline of the Monarchs population.
Through hands-on projects, students learn about the habitat, life cycle and the amazing migration of the Monarchs, while collaborating across borders on projects to restore habitat for future Monarch generations.
Mary Anne Rishebarger, Program Director USA, Monarch Sister Schools Program, and member of the NHSM Lep Club will share with us information about the program’s national and international efforts as well as what is being done on a local level here in Maryland. We may even start thinking about ways to make the NHSM Campus a Monarch Way-Station. This meeting of the NHSM Lep Club is offered in person as well as virtual.
