Take part in ongoing research on monarch butterflies. For more than 15 years, data collected at Five Rivers has been contributed to this continent-wide citizen science project conducted through the University of Minnesota.
The goal of the MLMP is to better understand how and why monarch populations vary, with a focus on their distribution and abundance during the breeding season in North America. Volunteers in the United States, Canada and Mexico aid in conserving monarchs and advance understanding of butterfly ecology and migration in general.
Meet at the Nature’s Accessible Backyard Trail kiosk, at the south end of our parking lot. Go to
Monarch Lab website to learn about the project.

Family Fun: CLOUDSPOTTING
Can’t tell a cumulus from a nimbus? A warm summer day
just begs us to tip our heads back and enjoy the clouds passing overhead. Join
us as we watch for and identify different cloud types, and learn what they can
tell us about the weather. Bring a blanket to lie on, if you like.
NOTE: Organized groups (scouts, schools, hiking clubs, etc.) are welcome, but are asked to call Five Rivers at 518-475-0291 to register.
