Welcome to the Monarch NECTAR Hub, a network for education on conservation, training, and research. This resource is here for you! You will find courses about monarch butterflies and training to support the count of monarchs throughout all stages of their lives, all backed by the latest scientific research. Participants will be able to take courses and trainings on their own schedules but still have access to MJV staff for questions.
Since 2009, the MJV has brought together partners from across the United States in a unified effort to conserve the monarch butterfly migration. This diverse partnership includes federal and state agencies, other nonprofits, community groups, businesses, and academic programs that work together to implement data-driven conservation actions in the form of education, habitat, and science. Check out our courses below to learn about monarchs and how you can become involved in their conservation.
