Over 100 4th grade students packed pollinator seeds for the Butterfly Highway and Mountain Wild/The Wildlife Federation in conjunction with our Global Ed Day.

In partnership with Asheville GreenWorks an expert in butterfly migration from Mexico came to speak to 2nd-4th grade students. Estela Romero lives in Angangueo, Mexico close to the monarch overwintering sanctuaries, and serves as the local news reporter for Journey North, and coordinates the Symbolic Migration program. 

This hands-on seed-packing event was a fantastic way for students to continue their study of the Monarch migration patterns and take an active role in helping the Butterfly Highway. These seeds will be distributed at local events by the Mountain Wild organization members.
