Boone's Lick Master Naturalists (Columbia chapter)

The Missouri Master Naturalist™ program is a community-based natural resource education and volunteer service program for adults, sponsored by the Missouri Department of Conservation and the University of Missouri Extension.

The mission is to engage Missourians in the stewardship of our state's natural resources through science-based education and volunteer community service.

Missouri Master Naturalist volunteers support conservation efforts and natural resource education in their local communities.

 

Missourians for Monarchs, Naturalist and Gardeners, Mid-Missouri Region

A website has been created for anyone interested, and particularly members of Mid-Missouri Master Naturalist Chapters, members of Master Gardener Clubs and Federated Garden Clubs, that provides a quick resource of information regarding how to establish and maintain a pollinator garden.

Monarch Butterfly population has decreased 90 percent since 1997. There are many reasons for this, but many are man-made. Pesticide use, herbicide use and mowing during Monarch migration are just a few of the causes. Various organizations are working on stopping these harmful activities. Meanwhile, what can you do to help protect existing and to establish new pollinator habitat to increase the number of pollinator insects which are so important for pollinating our food supply? The goal of Missourians for Monarchs is to establish new pollinator habitat in Central Missouri as part of the overall plan.
