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. 

 

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:

Emelia Lawrence: Undergraduate research intern at Northern Arizona University
Emily Haworth: Undergraduate research intern at Northern Arizona University

Dr. Rich Hofstetter: Associate Professor for the School of Forestry at Northern Arizona University

Dr. Mike Wagner: Regents' Professor Emeritus for the School of Forestry at Northern Arizona University 

Phil Patterson: Manager at Northern Arizona Research Greenhouse
