MJV: Monarchs in the Rough: Creating Habitat on Golf Courses
February 25, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CST
2:00 pm EST
Marcus Gray – Audubon International
To combat the decline of monarchs and the decline of other key pollinators, Audubon International and Environmental Defense Fund have teamed up to create Monarchs in the Rough in 2017, a program that partners with golf courses to restore pollinator habitat in out-of-play areas. This program works to create essential habitat for butterflies and increase awareness of the golf sector’s contribution to the monarch conservation challenge. Additional sponsors and grant funding was received to scale conservation up to the landscape then continental level.
