Larval stage monarchs depend on milkweed. Small teams of monitors look specifically at milkweed abundance, milkweed diversity, monarch larval density, and monarch survival rates at the Center. Data is entered into a national database to increase knowledge of monarch lifecycles in the wild, as well as milkweed diversity and abundance.
Activities Involved: Hiking, data entry
When: Weekly, late May – late August
