Monarch butterflies are one of the most recognizable butterflies in the United States and one of the most amazing species because of their ecology and migration behavior. Monarch butterflies migrate long distances to spend the winter in Mexico or along the coast of California. There are various threats to the survival of monarchs and their migration, and the number of butterflies migrating is decreasing every year. Join this class to learn about monarch ecology, their migration behavior, and what you can do to help the monarchs. Class will include an exclusive tour to the Marshall Butterfly Pavilion.
