We are a supporter of the Natives Raising Natives Project, which trains citizens of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation 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 threatened butterflies and pollinators, to provide training in butterfly farming, and to promote habitat restoration using native plants.
Your donation can make a huge difference towards furthering our goals of habitat conservation, youth education and economic independence for Native people through butterfly farming. Please click here to find out more about how you can help.
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 fourteen tribes, the College of the Muscogee Nation and Langston University.
The monarch butterfly population has plummeted over 90% during the last 20 years, primarily due to habitat loss. We are proud to be a founding member of the Tribal Alliance for Pollinators and the Tribal Environmental Action for Monarchs, which are providing training and technical support for habitat restoration on tribal lands.
