Monarch butterflies are known for epic migrations, traveling thousands of miles every year. Their route can span from Mexico to Canada, which makes it difficult to protect monarchs, because there’s no one single habitat to preserve.
Peggy Farabaugh, is the founder and CEO of Vermont Woods Studios in Vernon, a sustainable furniture company. She’s trying to create the kind of collaboration that will protect monarchs. She has joined forces with Jose Luis Alvarez, a Mexican tree nurseryman who started the organization Forests for Monarchs.
