CONSERVATION. CULTURAL PRESERVATION. SUSTAINABILITY.
Conservation. Cultural preservation. Sustainability. These are the three core values that the Euchee Butterfly Farm was founded on. We’re honored to have you join us as we uphold Neosho's legacy and we are truly grateful for your support of our mission.
All butterflies at the Euchee Butterfly Farm are raised by the Natives Raising Natives Project, which provides tribal members from the Muscogee (Creek) Nation with the necessary training, supplies and technical support to become butterfly farmers.
The Natives Raising Natives Project has three goals:
Create sustainable economic development for Native people in rural Oklahoma
Provide a hands-on science learning opportunity for Native youth
Raise awareness of the need to conserve ecosystems of native butterflies and other threatened pollinators.
For more details about our work supporting monarch conservation, youth education and habitat restoration on tribal land and to find out how your help can make a difference, please go to the website of our sister organization, The Learning Center at the Euchee Butterfly Farm, a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of Native people, plants and pollinators since 2013 through innovative community-based programs.
CREATING SUSTAINABLE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT FOR TRIBAL MEMBERS
This is the first and only program in the United States to teach butterfly farming to tribal members. It provides a unique opportunity to create sustainable, environmentally friendly economic development in rural areas lacking traditional employment opportunities.
