Topanga Elementary Wins Monarch and Pollinator Conservation Award 

On June 21, 2019, the Science Committee of Topanga Elementary Charter School received the good news that the school has been awarded the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation Monarch and Pollinator Habitat Award. 

The Xerces Society received over forty applications and Topanga Elementary School was one of six award recipients in Southern California. 

Protecting and restoring habitat is a crucial step in the conservation of western monarchs and native pollinators. 

Since the school is within five miles of the coast as the monarch flies, the school's plant kit will include the following plant types - Salvia mellifera, Solidago velutina ssp. californica, Symphyotrichum chilense, and Verbena lasiostachys.

Each kit is geographically specific and includes 1,600 perennial transplants raised at Hedgerow Farms, Winters, California.  

This fall, Topanga Elementary’s children, parents, and local volunteers will integrate these monarch plants into the school's three existing native habitat gardens (Butterfly hillside garden, Girl Scouts native garden, and the 5th Grade Legacy Project restoration garden) as well as the meadow within our campus' five acres of oak woodlands.  

Receipt of this award further distinguishes Topanga’s local public school, Topanga Elementary Charter School, as a leader in environmental conservation and stewardship.
