Posted on Wednesday, April 11, 2018 at 9:17 am in Uncategorized

It may not feel like it, but spring is coming soon, and with that comes milkweed and monarchs! Are you ready to start monitoring this season? 

It may not feel like it, but spring is coming soon, and with that comes milkweed and monarchs! 

Are you ready to start monitoring this season? Visit the MLMP website for activity refreshers and helpful "how-to" scenarios! Stay updated on when to expect milkweed and monarchs with Journey North's Monarch Butterfly Migration Map and First Milkweed Map. When you first spot milkweed at your site, you should start your weekly monitoring.

Interested in an in-person training? Check our Upcoming Training Sessions frequently to see if there will be one near you! 

Thank you to everyone who submitted a report during the 2017 International Monarch Monitoring Blitz! 

Last summer, we asked citizen scientists to submit reports of monarchs and milkweed to MLMP during the 2017 International Monarch Monitoring Blitz. From July 29 - August 5, MLMP alone recieved approximately 300 reports! Because monarchs are so widespread throughout the continent, it is difficult to accurately capture the size of the breeding population before migration. The data from this blitz contirbutes to the Monarch Conservation Science Partnership's conservation research.

If you missed the blitz, or want to continute to contribute, check out our online training videos! Your regular monitoring data through MLMP are vital to monarch conservation research. Anytime you see a milkweed or monarch outside of your site, you can submit your observations as a 'Milkweed or Monarch Observation'. 

Thank you for your participation!
