Calling all concerned butterfly & nature lovers – monarchs need our help! The eastern monarch butterfly population is down; they've declined 26% from just last year’s population size. So the City of Arvada is participating in the 2021 Mayor’s Monarch Pledge to support the declining populations of Monarch Butterflies through a variety of action items throughout Arvada.
You can join our efforts and celebrate these special pollinators with us on Saturday, August 14 and become a Monarch warrior. This free, family fun event at the Majestic View Nature Center will have face painting, kids activities, and more. Learn about these butterflies, tour the pollinator & milkweed gardens to see what it takes to maintain these areas and see where the nearest pollinator garden is to you. Learn more about the Monarch Pledge, what we’re doing and other upcoming events at majesticviewnc.org/monarch.
