"Benito Juárez" Kindergarten San Jerónimo Pilitas

SCHOOL VISIT.-

At this beautiful small village, “San Jerónimo Pilitas”. located at the back-belt buffer zone to Sanctuary “Sierra Chincua”, there is one Kindergarten, one Elementary School, one Middle School with rather few students (around 16), and one High School with a similar number of students (16-20 at the most). The Kindergarten school has got only 6-8 attendees. The population in this and the surrounding villages is curiously not as high as it is in the surrounding communities to “El Rosario” Sanctuary, located at an opposite direction about 12-14 kilometers from each other, facing peak to peak at each other’s mountain tops. For the Symbolic Migration, it is extremely important to reach this far away communities into the dense forests, since they are the ones responsible for conserving the buffer areas to Monarchs’ overwintering sites. These little children visited at the community, have only got started with the very basic conception of Monarchs coming from very far away to spend the winter in our beautiful Oyamel forests, and, while staying here and living with the wonderful bees, bats, hummingbirds, wasps, and other butterflies, they all work together as a family to do a very important job to provide us with delicous fruits and vegetables!.”Yes!, we can see Monarch butterflies flying all around when it is sunny!. They arrived on the Day of the Dead while Mon, Dad and our grandpa’s were setting our ofrendas to our dear Dead relatives at home!”, and so they immediately got familiar with their varied pollinator insects in the area., and excitedely received for the first time in their lives their Ambassador Monarchs as a signal of other little children living very far away from where the Monarch butterflies just arrived to them!!!.
