Monarch Butterfly Initiative

IDNR will be hosting a kick off meeting with a sampling of conservation leaders across Illinois to lay the ground work for developing a statewide conservation strategy for the monarch butterfly.  As the strategy is developed and implemented, interested individuals and organizations will have an opportunity to participate in sector-specific initiatives.  If you are interested in participating in future discussions, sign up here. Check back on this website for a summary of the kickoff meeting and opportunities to be more involved in the monarch conservation in IL.
