Monarchs are Arriving in Mexico Soon as MBF Wraps-Up 2019

After our successful 2019 summer reforestation, local communities returned to their daily activities and were busy taking part in workshops and keeping up their tree nurseries. During August, September, and October, our local partner, Alternare, held three workshops in three indigenous communities with nine women and sixteen men participating. Four cisterns to capture rainwater were built as a result in these communities, benefiting 102 women and 89 men.

Additionally, MBF continues supporting 30 existing community and school tree nurseries. Alternare visits them to ensure everything continues to work well and is maintained. Plus everyone is planning ahead - 30,000 forest trees are already being grown using new biodegradable bags. “These bags are great. Next reforestation, we won’t have to worry about leaving them behind!”, said Tomas, a community member from Carpinteros community.

Monarchs will overwinter in Mexico soon, and MBF continues supporting activities that lead to better forest management, sustainability, and an improved habitat to host them. Thanks for being a part of this effort. We couldn’t do it without you!
