WHO WE ARE
Milkweeds for Monarchs is a self-organized pilot project based in Flagstaff, Arizona, propelled by citizen science volunteers. We have no operating budget, but raise funds to grow and distribute milkweed plants through local plant sales and other private efforts. The following individuals serve as the Project Team at Northern Arizona University to coordinate this effort:
