Monarch Monitoring Blitz July 29th – August 5th

How to participate in the monarch monitoring blitz?

Participating in the monarch monitoring blitz is easy!   Visit monarch habitat that contains milkweed between July 29th  and August 5th, check for monarch eggs, caterpillars, and chrysalises, and report your observations! Eggs and caterpillars can be found on milkweed plants, but chrysalises are rarely observed on milkweed plants.    Eggs, caterpillars and chrysalises are evidence that monarchs are reproducing.
