The 3rd Annual International Monarch Monitoring Blitz is coming up in Canada, Mexico and the United States from 27 July to 4 August 2019.
For one week, the Blitz invites people across North America to go out to gardens, parks and green areas and monitor milkweed plants for monarch eggs, caterpillars, chrysalises and butterflies. This information will help researchers identify priority areas for monarch conservation actions.
You can help by spreading the word, hosting a monitoring event, or monitoring during this time!
To take part in the Blitz, simply observe milkweed and monarchs, and report your observations. Record the location and area where you monitored, the number of milkweed plants observed, and the number and life stage of monarchs counted (even if there are no monarchs!).
