The Mayor Needs Your Help To Meet Monarch Pledge 
Do you love butterflies, birds, and bees? Do you love gardening, flowers, making green healthy spaces? Do you want to do good in your community? Join the mayor in planning how Columbia Heights can take part in a pollinator initiative to help the Monarch butterfly population and other species affected by climate change, diminishing food and habitat spaces, and pesticide use. The mayor is looking for a group of people who want to work on this issue during 2021. The City must complete three tasks in order to be a part of the MMP (Mayor's Monarch Pledge). The mayor will be holding a Zoom meeting Sat, Feb 27, 1 pm. To receive a link to the meeting, email AMarquezSimula@columbiaheightsmn.gov

More About the National Wildlife Federation's Mayors Monarch Pledge
Mayors and other heads of local and tribal government are taking action to help save the monarch butterfly, an iconic species whose eastern populations have declined by 90% and western populations by 99% in recent years. Through the National Wildlife Federation's Mayors' Monarch Pledge, U.S. cities, municipalities, and other communities are committing to create habitat for the monarch butterfly and pollinators, and to educate residents about how they can make a difference at home and in their community.
