Monarch Wings Across The Eastern Broadleaf Forest

Monarch Wings Across The Eastern Broadleaf Forest (MWAEBF) seeks to increase monarch habitat by engaging public land managers and private land stewards throughout the Eastern Broadleaf Forest-Continental Province (EBF-CP) through a series of monarch habitat enhancement activities with the goal of impacting 4,688, acres of monarch habitat. Monarchs do not consider political boundaries in their migration, and the perimeters of the Eastern Broadleaf Forest span multiple state boundaries. Cooperation among these states and their conservation partners will increase seed resources without jeopardizing native plant material ranges. This project is funded by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and is in partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program (IL, IN, and OH), Illinois Department of Natural Resources – Mason State Nursery, Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Ohio Pollinator Habitat Initiative, Chicago Botanic Garden, Holden Arboretum, the University of Arkansas, Pheasants Forever (IL and OH), and Pollinator Partnership.

The green area overlapping the United States represents the Eastern Broadleaf Forest-Continental Province Ecoregion.
