Class Title: Monitoring Monarchs
Instructor: Britt Patterson-Weber
Class Description: The monarch butterfly is among the world's most recognized and researched insects. Scientists are concerned about threats to this creature's habitats, migration, and reproduction - but you can help! Data collected by citizen scientists is vital to professional scientists researching monarch butterfly behavior, parasites, migration, and more. In this workshop, you will: 1) learn about several on-going monarch monitoring projects and find out how you can participate; 2) discover which milkweeds are best for monarchs; 3) get hands-on practice tagging and netting monarchs.
