Monarch Motivation: Population Increase in 2021

Sometimes you need some good news and motivation, and we have some for you today–the western monarch butterfly population has increased! Biologists and volunteers count overwintering monarchs in coastal California each year. During the fall of 2021, the Xerces Society counted nearly 250,000 butterflies compared to less than 2,000 butterflies counted during fall 2020. Although that is merely a sliver of the millions of monarch butterflies that migrated in the 1980s and …continue reading

I'm constantly impressed with the youth in the Bishop area. Whenever I'm out teaching a lesson, I often feel like I learn just as much from the students as they're hopefully learning from me. They're caring, kind and inquisitive, and most importantly, they're budding conservationists. On a …continue reading
