Monarch migration

We again track the migration of the Monarch butterflies as they move north by checking the 2020 Monarch Migration Map!  A screen shot of the map showing reported first sightings of adults is below as reference (retrieved 02Jul2020) but follow the hyperlinks to check the interactive map! 

Check your milkweed!  Those incredible spring monarchs have made the long journey north to the Canadian prairies and they need a safe place to lay eggs where their larvae can feed and grow! 

Visit the Journey North website to learn more about migration events in North America and visit their monarch butterfly website for more information related to this fascinating insect.
