  • MJV Partnership News

We are delighted that Hallberg Butterfly Gardens is joining the MJV network! Based in Sebastopol, California, Hallberg Butterfly Gardens is a nonprofit wildlife sanctuary and demonstration garden that focuses on Lepidoptera (moths and butterflies) and other pollinators (bees, beetles, wasps, and flies). They see insect relationships with resilient plant communities as a gateway to understanding holistic habitat restoration. They are Sonoma County’s oldest butterfly garden.

Hallberg Butterfly Gardens is actively participating in monarch habitat restoration, education, and community science activities. This past fall, they planted over 900 native plants with a special focus on supporting the life cycle of the monarch butterfly. They also participated in MJV’s Monarchs & More Western Habitat Program, planting .2 acres of native wildflower seeds. They offer education workshops and events that support biodiversity awareness and are currently developing a demonstration garden to enhance educational opportunities. They are active in the Western Monarch Count organized by the Xerces Society and will be participating in MJV’s Monarch Larva Monitoring Project in 2024.

In joining the MJV partnership, Hallberg Butterfly Gardens hopes to expand their network and impact as they work to inspire long-term agency in their community. We are delighted to continue collaborating with this community organization through this partnership. For more information about Hallberg Butterfly Gardens, please visit
