You are invited to participate in the 25th annual "Symbolic Monarch Butterfly Migration" with youth from across North America. More than 25,000 students in the United States and Canada will create symbolic butterflies this fall and send them to Mexico for the winter. Students from schools near the monarch sanctuaries in Mexico will protect the butterflies and send them north in the spring. The symbolic butterflies build bridges of communication between students in Mexico, the U.S., and Canada. United by the monarch butterfly, children across North America learn authentic lessons of conservation, cooperation, and ambassadorship.
This season we are going VIRTUAL!
For complete details on how to participate, please download the TEACHER PACKET for the 2020-21 Symbolic Migration season. The printable documents linked below are in the Teacher Packet, but are also included here for your convenience.
To cover the costs of this important educational project, participants must buy a $10 “Passenger Ticket” for each Class Ambassador Butterfly folder submitted. These funds will support school visits in Mexico to deliver the butterflies and provide conservation education. Purchases are made through our secure website with credit/debit cards (Discover, MasterCard, or Visa) or mailed checks (U.S. banks only).
