“The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum will facilitate the creation of the Arizona Monarch Conservation Partnership as a network of government agencies, NGOs, universities and citizen-scientists to advance monarch butterfly conservation in its western range in Arizona with activities that will include Asclepias surveys, seed collection, increasing Asclepias seed availability and density, native plant propagation and habitat improvement, monarch adult and immature monitoring in breeding areas, and tagging monarchs to determine migration flyways” (Edelen 2015).
