NPAT-Fort Worth Chapter – Second Monday Meet-up (FYI)
Monday, November 9,  2015     6:30 pm

The Fort Worth Chapter of Native Prairies Association of Texas meets on 2nd Mondays.
Monarchs in Texas: Partners for Wildlife Program to Stem Monarch Habitat Loss 
Don Wilhelm, Partners for Wildlife program coordinator with the local US Fish & Wildlife Service office will present on their work with monarchs in Texas. He will discuss how the USFWS is working with their partners & with landowners in numerous ways to help reverse the pressing threats to monarchs due to habitat loss, loss of native milkweed plants due to development, & the need for nectar sources during the monarch migrations.
The monarch butterfly is one of the most beautiful & recognizable insects on earth, but it needs our help. The native prairie habitats with milkweed for caterpillar development & native wildflowers for nectar sources to support pollinators are a key component in the survival of our monarchs & other pollinator species. This will be a great opportunity to find out how we can use our prairies – & also our own residential areas – to help give monarchs & other pollinators the resources they need to survive.
Location – Westside Presbyterian Church 8700 Chapin Rd. Fort Worth at 6:30 pm
