We are a supporter of the Natives Raising Natives Project, which trains tribal members to be butterfly farmers in order to promote rural employment and raise awareness of butterfly conservation. To learn more about the Natives Raising Natives Project, please click here.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded by tribal citizens in Oklahoma to offer education about butterflies and threatened pollinators, to provide training in butterfly farming, and to promote conservation of habitat for threatened butterfly species.
The monarch butterfly population has plummeted over 90% during the last 20 years, primarily due to habitat loss. We are proud to be a member of the Tribal Environmental Action for Monarchs coalition, which is restoring 350 acres of critical monarch habitat on tribal lands.

Hands-on projects for youth with butterflies and caterpillars teach the importance of the role of pollinators in our environment, while increasing their interest in science and reconnecting them with nature. Our youth programming currently serves ten tribes plus the Langston University 4-H.
