Project Report | Jan 7, 2022
Successful 2021 Opens the Door to the New Year!

With the overwintering colonies already established, Alternare has begun planning for the coming year. Looking back at the past year, Alternare’s team proudly reported having held 79 workshops with 649 people from the indigenous communities of the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve! During the last four months of the year, they held four workshops where 70 people were trained to build four rainwater capturing cisterns that will benefit 70 families. One of the men from Nicolás Romero Indigenous Community told us, "I was not expecting the cisterns to be so cheap! I'll be able to share what I learned with other people so they can build them in their communities too."

An additional workshop to construct a fuel-efficient stove that will benefit six families was also conducted.

More workshops are planned for 2022 including topics such as forest tree production, reforestation techniques, and construction of more rainwater capturing cisterns.

With your support, MBF is looking forward to supporting Alternare in another successful year of activities that benefit local communities while conserving and restoring the overwintering habitat for the monarchs. THANK YOU!!
