Join us for the 28th annual "Symbolic Monarch Butterfly Migration" with youth from across North America. Families, home schools, nature centers, youth groups, and classrooms are welcome to participate.
In fall 2022, nearly 10,000 youth in the U.S. and Canada created symbolic butterflies and sent them to Mexico for the winter. Students in schools near the Mexican monarch sanctuaries protected the butterflies and sent them north in spring 2023.
These 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. Read about the Mexican school visits at https://symbolicmigration.org/.
The complete details on how to participate are in the 2023-24 LEADER PACKET. The printable documents linked below are in the Leader Packet as well, but are also included here for your convenience.
To cover the costs of this important educational project, participants must buy a $15 “Passenger Ticket” for each Ambassador Butterfly folder submitted. These funds will support school visits in Mexico to deliver the butterflies and provide conservation education. Purchases can be made through our secure website with credit/debit cards (Discover, Mastercard, or Visa) or mailed checks (U.S. banks only).
