Monarch Butterfly Earth Day Virtual Celebration – April 21

Ohio State’s Environmental Professionals Network (EPN) signature Earth Day celebration this year is Take Flight!, a focus on local and global efforts to protect and restore the monarch butterfly. The U.S. Midwest region serves as a vital corridor in the monarch’s migration cycle between Mexico to Canada across the United States. Monarch populations have declined by more than 70 percent in North America, and a global conservation effort is required to restore them. This program focuses on solutions and tangible resources. Dr. Doug Tallamy, New York Times best-selling author, and Jane Breckinridge, director, Euchee Butterfly Farm, and an enrolled citizen of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation, will share the virtual stage with leading Ohioans from private, public, and non-profit sectors who are taking action across Ohio to protect pollinator habitat and show us how individuals and communities can engage locally to make a difference in this global conservation movement.  EPN is hosting the event with the CFAES School of Environment and Natural Resources. To learn more and register, visit go.osu.edu/epnapr21.

If the animal is shown in another exhibition, the exhibitor must not show a breeding project as a market project or visa versa.

Cooperator is defined as ‘the owner/operator of the facility where the animal(s) will be housed.’

Any exhibitor found to be housing their animal away from home without a completed form will loose the right to show and sell any project at the Waterford, Washington County, and Barlow Fairs for the duration of the project year.

Form is due to the Extension Office, 202 Davis Ave., Marietta, no later than 4:30pm on April 15th of the project year.  One form each year per project.
