As part of my work with Missourians for Monarchs N&G, I give presentations on the plight of the Monarch butterfly and would be happy to talk to any garden club, civic organization, board of directors, city council, farming organization, school, church or any other interested group.

If you want to get involved in pollinator habitat restoration and expansion, please consider joining a local gardening organization or Master Naturalist Chapter or just volunteer to work on one of their projects.  You can always establish a backyard habitat for Monarch Butterflies on your own.  Click on the page link Backyard Habitat above to access this information.

Additionally, if you have larger property suitable for planting a pollinator habitat and don't know where to start, please contact me and I can possibly coordinate funding to help you or put you in touch with the correct Regional Coordinator.

I currently serve the following Missouri counties: Benton, Boone, Cole, Cooper, Dallas, Hickory, Laclede, Maries, Miller, Moniteau, Morgan, Osage, Pettis and Pulaski. 

To reach me, please go to the"Contact Us" link above and send me an email.  I will try to respond within 48 hours.


"As a retiree, I just could not see myself sitting down and doing nothing. Increasing pollinator habitat through education and working with the people in the Master Naturalist Chapters and various gardening organizations gives me a mission in life.  And I am very grateful to be able to assist in this worthwhile effort."
