Make California safe for monarch butterflies

Monarch butterflies, easily recognized by their orange and black wings, are a keystone species known for their remarkable migration up and down North America. But since 1990, about 970 million monarchs have vanished from the skies they once majestically traveled from Mexico to the United States and Canada each spring.

Planting milkweed on public lands -- along highways, in wildlife refuges, on public campuses and more -- is a concrete action we can take right now to support monarch butterflies.

Tell the governor to make our state monarch-friendly by planting milkweed and nectar plants on state lands.
