Spring Reflections - Message from MBF

Spring is here and monarchs are on their way back to the United States and Canada! Nature goes on as usual, the sun shines every morning, birds chirp, flowers bloom and milkweed waits for the monarchs while all of us stay at home. The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown our lives into turmoil, but it is comforting that the rest of the natural world has escaped our human chaos.

Technology has become our savior, enabling us to work from home and communicate with our loved ones. More now than ever we see the importance of all staying connected with each other and with nature. We can be as resilient as the monarchs! Those of us who have yards can still go out and care for milkweed and nectar plant patches, and be inspired by their long journey and beauty. As Vincent Van Gogh wrote, “Great things are done by a series of small things brought together” and now is the time for all of us to rise to the challenge and do great things.
