Monarch butterflies travel through our area on their way to the overwintering habitat in Mexico.  Learn about this great migration and how you can become involved in citizen science activities to advance our knowledge of this awesome journey. Understand what role fall flowers play in supporting monarch flight. Discover the pollinators who share butterflies’ floral needs when summer is closing, and what they do to prepare for winter.
