Our Story

Who We Are Environmental Conservationists

Forests for Monarchs (FFM), a program of La Cruz Habitat Protection Project, Inc., reforests land in and around the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve where millions of monarch butterflies spend each winter, and in the Highland Lakes Area of Michoacán, Mexico. Our goal is to help conserve the monarch butterfly winter habitat while aiding the surrounding communities in creating a sustainable livelihood supported by good forest stewardship.
