Mayor's Monarch Pledge

Mayor's Monarch Pledge:
Become a part of McAllen's Community Wildlife Habitat

The City of McAllen is participating in the Mayor's Monarch Pledge, which is a national initiative from the National Wildlife Federation (NFW). The purpose of the pledge is to commit to create habitat and educate citizens about how they can make a difference at home. The City of McAllen wishes to invite and encourage the community at large, including homeowners, schools, businesses, places of worship, and others to plant and certify Monarch butterfly gardens in order to help this iconic species.


Monarch butterfly numbers have declined 90% over the last 20 years across North America. This is because of the overuse of pesticides and herbicides, loss of habitat, and disease. The Lower Rio Grande Valley is in the pathway of the annual Monarch's migration to overwinter in Mexico and to go back to the north in the spring. Since 95% of natural habitat in the Valley has been altered, degraded, or destroyed due to a variety of land use practices, it is extremely important to provide Monarch habitats within urban areas to help them continue their journey, have successive generation, and ultimately ensure their survival.


By planting a butterfly garden and certifying it officially as a Wildlife Habitat with the NWF. Plant it and they will come! We designed a butterfly garden in front of the historic mansion and there are butterflies everywhere including beautiful Monarchs. We also planted a garden by the Ruby Pond, and it's visited continuously by fluttering butterflies. Start yours today!


Anyone with a bit of space can make a garden that attracts butterfly, birds, and other wildlife. Or your garden may already bring in butterflies, birds, and other wildlife. To become part of the City of McAllen's Community Wildlife Habitat, which is part of McAllen's Mayor's Monarch Pledge, you certify your garden (which is a habitat) with the NFW, by filling out this form and mailing it, or by doing so online directly. It costs $20 to certify a garden. School certifications are free. When you certify, you show that you care!
