Monarchs in the Rough is a partnership between Audubon International and Environmental Defense Fund. The program connects and supports superintendents and other golf course staff as they plan, install, and manage habitat projects for the monarch butterfly on their courses. Thanks to a grant from the National Fish & Wildlife Foundation, Monarchs in the Rough provides regionally-appropriate milkweed & wildflower mixes to golf courses – enough to establish an acre of high-quality monarch habitat to US states West of the Mississippi & Great Lakes . Larger projects are encouraged. Milkweed-only plantings can be supported in other areas on a case by case basis through other sources of funding as they become available & are a wonderful compliment to a local pollinator mix.
Monarchs in the Rough also offers signage, posters, and technical guidance to golf course managers as they install and manage habitat, and as they communicate with course members about their effort to save the monarch.
By joining Monarchs in the Rough, golf courses can do their part to prevent further monarch losses while gaining recognition as an environmental leader and connecting with their communities in new ways.
