Texans leading the way to save Monarch Butterflies
The National Wildlife Federation has appointed a Monarch Outreach Specialist to work with cities, municipalities, and citizens. Her name is Grace Barnett, and her first official duties include enlisting Texas mayors to take the "Mayors' Monarch Pledge” to help counter threats to the great annual Monarch migration. Mayors are invited to promote milkweed planting on public landscapes, through city initiatives, and by citizens. Austin Mayor Steve Adler has already signed up.
Please help us out in this effort by sending E-mails to your city council representative and the mayor asking them to sign-on to the this Mayors' Monarch Pledge", and please read the full article in the following link: http://www.greensourcedfw.org/articl...planting-texas

Regards, Michael Francis, FWAS President
