Kansas Monarch Conservation Plan

The Kansas Monarch Conservation Plan is centered on a 20-year objective to conserve, enhance, establish and create pollinator habitat on private, public, and urban lands through non-regulatory, voluntary efforts and actions across the state. Kansas is a national stronghold for monarch conservation and is uniquely positioned to conserve and enhance large acreage and landscapes for monarch migratory and breeding habitat. The Kansas Monarch Conservation Plan serves as a guiding document to support ongoing efforts or new conservation actions, recognizing it will take a multi-sector approach to achieve the set goals. This plan is intended for use by any individual or entity planning, implementing or funding monarch conservation activities in Kansas.
