I was given this very special coin from my kind and
thoughtful friend and neighbor, Nancy Miyares. She taught me all about her love and passion for the monarch butterflies, gave me an inspirational reference book on the Monarch (Saving Our Most-Loved Butterfly) by Kylee Baumle and inspires everyone she knows. I love the art of helping them survive. It is my honor to pass this coin on to a dear friend who is inspired by nature and gardening, Jeannie K. who is also a member of the Wildflower Garden Club. Jeannie has raised the Monarchs with love and passion, understanding the need to take care of these beauties.
I purchased this coin because I am a citizen scientist with Monarchs. I have been raising, testing for OE, and tagging Monarchs for years. This is my passion. I was blessed to be able to go to Mexico in 2018 and visit several of the Monarch wintering areas. A dream come true to see this sight. I am now passing this on to my dear friend and neighbor, Nancy Dunn. I introduced her to Monarchs several years ago. She is a birder and wildflower member, so it was natural to teach her about rearing Monarchs. When I go out of town she watches my cats and chrysalis. She is a true friend that is so kind.
