The University of Minnesota Monarch Lab
The Monarch Lab aims to combine real science with techniques that work for both teachers and students. Within the Monarch Lab, there are opportunities for formal and informal educators to be guided in instructing their students to learn science in ways that reflect the science process methods scientists use to understand the natural world.

The unexpected cycnia moth (Cycnia inopinatus) is a milkweed dependent moth species. We are interested in documenting observations from throughout its geographic range (Great Plains to the East Coast), so we can learn more about its habitat requirements and where it is located. Volunteer-collected data will be used to model potential habitat throughout the entirety of its range.
