Expand your knowledge and help save Monarchs, one city at-a-time!
Barbara Keller-Willy is the Founder and Director of a Fort Bend County, TX non-profit, Monarch Gateway; she also is a member on the Board of Directors of NPAT.
Monarch Gateway is collaborating with two distinctive partners, Chicago Field Museum and The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, conducting a study of practices that benefit pollinators. Their data is being collected in Chicago, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Kansas City, and Austin to determine if cities can help increase Monarch populations by creating friendly habitat. YOU CAN PARTICIPATE! All information is on this link: Monarch Gateway.
These tiny creatures begin their INCREDIBLE annual southern migration every fall from as far north as Chicago, IL, flying toward a single destination: a forest in Central Mexico. There they will cling together in the oyamel fir trees and hibernate until it is time to begin their journey northward. Their destination is the SAME SITE EVERY YEAR, but the butterflies who arrive there will never have been there before! (To complete this journey the Monarchs must breed along their migration path; only the 3rd or 4th generation reach their destination! How do they know where to go?)
Get the APP, learn more about the migration, and monitor daily progress on Learner.org Monarch Butterfly.
