Monarchs are busily fluttering about the overwintering colonies in Mexico and Alternare is joining in all the excitement and joy of having them visit Mexico! Alternare and the local communities ended 2019 with one workshop to build a cistern for the Nicolás Romero community and started the planning process for the 2020 reforestation by keeping up with the maintenance on their school and community tree nurseries.
Although it may seem early to start thinking about planting trees, communities are thinking ahead and are inspired by the monarchs flying about around their properties. “We have to think not only of this year but of the future so that butterflies always find shelter in our forests,” said one of the community planners.
We’re starting off the year on the right foot. MBF thanks YOU for supporting our efforts to ensure the conservation of the forest habitat and the well-being of the local communities!
