McKinney Monarch Initiative

Supporting Pollinators

The City of McKinney is proud to have joined hundreds of cities across the U.S. in support of the monarch butterfly and other pollinators, whose populations have declined, by signing the National Wildlife Federation’s Mayors’ Monarch Pledge. Our mission is to provide information promoting the creation of habitats to increase the monarch population during migration through the McKinney area.
