“If you can imagine it, you can see it. If you can see it, you can create it. Let us imagine a world in harmony” – Kari Warberg Block
What is The Year of the Monarch?
The monarch butterfly is one of nature’s boldest and most recognizable pollinators, but it is also at risk due to pesticide use and habitat loss.
The Year of the Monarch is an invitation for everyone to learn about and appreciate the monarch butterfly and other pollinators that play a vital role in our ecosystem. This is an opportunity to champion naturally smarter™ eco-education initiatives and support the teachers who lead them. Along the way, we’ll focus on creating harmony in the places we live, work, play, and learn.
