The development and creation of this Monarch Conservation Program web page was funded by the California Association of Resource Conservation Districts and a grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
CCRCD staff are always on the lookout for monarchs and other pollinators. Whenever we can, we take photos in the field so we can share the splendor of California’s biodiverse pollinators with you. The photo gallery below features many different types of pollinators, pollinator plants, and pollinator gardens and hedgerows. Enjoy!
Skills: Horticulture, invasive plant removal, CA native plants & animals, grant writing
