43b) Fly Over State-Cassia Nebel

Patron: Amigos/Kings Classic

Inspired by the iconic butterfly species commonly known as “monarch” (Danaus plexippus), which is in serious decline due to multiple threats including; widespread use of glyphosate herbicides and neonicotinoids insecticides, cutting of the fir forests, and drought associated with climate change. Monarchs undertake a migration of epic proportions that spans Canada, the United States and Mexico, and Nebraska lies in this very important travel corridor.  It is important that the public become aware of the impact we have on these beautiful creatures, and take action to have positive impacts rather than negative.
