How You Can Support Southwest Monarch Study
Audubon Camp 2011
The Southwest Monarch Study (SWMS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and
your donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Through your
support, we are the “go to” place for monarch information, education and
conservation in the Southwest! In 2016 we’ve offered over 75 educational
events including monarch and milkweed presentations, tables at public events,
Farmer’s Markets and milkweed/nectar restoration. We received a $88,950 grant
from National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to provide monarch habitats at Arizona
State Parks, Tonto National Forest, and along the San Pedro River through our
partnership with the U. S. Bureau of Reclamation. Another partner, Signature Botanica,
is growing native milkweeds from locally collected seeds. In 2015, we published our first paper,
“Status of Danaus plexippus in Arizona” in the Journal of the Lepidopterists’
Society. Free tags for wild monarchs are provided to everyone in Arizona,
New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, western Colorado, and the deserts of California.
YOUR donations help make
this possible! We are grateful for your consideration and your support.
