• Panetta Press Conf. Protect the Monarch Butterflys

    On Saturday, March 27 at 2:30PM PT, Congressman Jimmy Panetta (D-Carmel Valley) will hold a press conference on the introduction of his two bills to prevent further decline of the Western Monarch Butterfly.  Congressman Panetta will be joined by Mayor Bill Peake of Pacific Grove and Mayor Donna Meyers of Santa Cruz in the Central Coast Native Plant Garden at the Natural History Museum in Pacific Grove.  A staff representative of the museum will be in attendance to answer questions surrounding the native plant garden, which is home to local plants that attract the Western Monarch and play a crucial role in the species’ conservation.

    Earlier this month, Congressman Panetta reintroduced the bipartisan, bicameral Monarch Action, Recovery, and Conservation of Habitat (MONARCH) Act in addition to the introduction of his Monarch and Pollinator Highway Act.  The bills would invest in the conservation of the Western Monarch, which faces the threat of population collapse.

    Members of the media who are interested in attending this event should contact Sarah Cronin at sarah.cronin@mail.house.gov.

    Those in attendance are asked to follow COVID safety guidelines by wearing a mask and maintaining physical distance.
