Partnering to conserve the monarch butterfly migration

Creating Habitat in Agricultural Margins

There are a number of opportunities through Farm Bill conservation programs to improve habitat for pollinators, including monarchs. Milkweeds are nectar-rich plants that benefit not only monarchs, but many bee species and other butterflies. Through programs such as the Conservation Stewardship Program and Environmental Quality Incentives Program, the Xerces Society and NRCS have engaged land owners in installing large-scale pollinator habitat on farms in California, Oregon, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, New Jersey, and Minnesota.
