Feed the Pollinators! :). Sierra Monarch Rescue will be distributing free milkweed in 2023. Your dollars helps cover costs of propagating and distributing milkweed throughout El Dorado and Amador Counties to create the Sierra Foothill Monarch and Pollinator Flyway. It will also help us buy Native Plants for the Nisenan Village in Marshall-Gold Park and other projects around the area. $15 helps us buy a one gallon plant. The pollinators thank you!

Feed the little chickens! :) You've met them at Apple Hill and gave them a hug. The adorable mini-Therapy chickens appeared at El Dorado Orachard and Bluestone Meadow Farms in 2022. Hopefully they made your day brighter. Your dollars cover vet visits, feed, shelter and help provide companion mini-chickens to families with special needs at a low cost. $25 will help us buy a 50lb bag of chicken feed. The Chickies thank you.
