Monarch CCAA Toolkit

 

Monarch CCAA Toolkit

The purpose of this toolkit is to support interested applicants and enrolled partners participating in the Nationwide Monarch Butterfly Candidate Conservation Agreement for Energy and Transportation Lands (CCAA).

 

The tools and guidelines linked here were developed to aid organizations in consistent and effective implementation of the CCAA. This toolkit also provides a place to find best practices and other resources developed collaboratively or sourced from across the CCAA partner network.

Liability for the implementation of the CCAA, or any use made of these implementation resources by its partners, is the sole responsibility of the partner itself. None of the authors, contributors, administrators, or anyone else connected with the CCAA, in any way whatsoever, can be responsible for your use of the information contained in or linked in these resources.
