MISSION

Our mission is to use citizen volunteer gardeners to assess the suitability of a range of region-appropriate milkweeds in home gardens and determine their utilization by monarch butterflies in mid and high elevations in Arizona.

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:
