On October 13th, at the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas, Texan by Nature joined with US Fish and Wildlife Service, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and National Wildlife Federation to unveil The Texas Monarch/Native Pollinator Conservation Plan to spur monarch butterfly and native pollinator recovery efforts in Texas.
“In order for Texas to remain a thriving central flyway for the Monarch butterfly, we must join together to conserve and create essential monarch habitat,” said Mrs. Laura Bush. “Conservation truly begins at home, and with more Texans lending their time, expertise, land, and resources, we can ensure that the Monarch butterfly – the state insect of Texas – is here to stay.”
As part of the coordinated statewide recovery efforts, Texan by Nature has launched our Monarch Wrangler program in partnership with US Fish and Wildlife Service and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. Texan by Nature’s new Monarch Wrangler program provides Texas employers, organizations, and individuals with results-oriented and meaningful ways to create habitat essential to the monarch butterfly, and pollinators, on corporate campuses, at places of worship, and in their own backyards.
