WHY: Raise awareness of understanding of the insect pollinators that make one out of every three bites of food possible–through the lens of the monarch butterfly migration.Each fall, monarch butterflies make a grand trek through Texas on their way to their high altitude winter roosts in the mountains west of Mexico City, just in time for Day of the Dead. In Mexico, the butterflies are often associated with the souls of lost loved ones. Festival participants will gain insight and understanding regarding migration, immigration, interconnectedness, climate change and sustainability.
