In 2014, in response to threats to the monarch butterfly migration and bee colony collapse, La Vista created a pollinator garden.  Volunteers weeded and seeded a 6,000 square foot area.  An Eagle Scout troop made four benches for the garden.  We continue to develop this garden each year.

Since pollinators are responsible for every third bite of food we eat, and because their disappearance creates a hole in the ecosystem, we consider this effort important in contributing to the integrity of creation.  

We understand that monarch butterflies are migrants as they travel from the North to Mexico and back yearly. We are happy to provide milkweed, necessary for their development.
