Take part in ongoing research on monarch butterflies. For more than 15 years, we have collected data at Five Rivers and contributed to the University of Minnesota’s continent-wide citizen science project. 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 (Canada, Mexico, and United States). Go to monarchjointventure.org/mlmp to learn more about the project.

For this program, meet at the pavilion near the main parking lot.

Please call 518-475-0291 by the Monday  before the program to register
