Journey North is a crowdsourced, participatory science program of the UW-Madison Arboretum. Thousands of volunteers across North America contribute observational data that help track wildlife migration and seasonal change. Journey North volunteers track the migration of monarch butterflies; six species of hummingbirds; American robins; common loons; red-winged blackbirds; Baltimore, Bullocks and orchard orioles; barn swallows; and bald eagles.
You can also join in a Journey North's educational project called the Tulip Test Garden. Plant tulip bulbs in the fall and then predict emergence and bloom dates in the spring.
Explore the Journey North website for inquiry-based learning resources designed to engage students in the study of wildlife migration. Subscribe to receive news updates. Finally, watch migration unfold in real-time on interactive maps.
