Monarch Larva Monitoring

Save to Favorites

Mississippi National River and Recreation Area, National Park Service

re you interested in volunteering with wildlife in the park this summer? Are you curious about the lives of moths and butterflies? This training may be for you. Join Jessica Miller and Claire Jaeger Mountain in this training on butterflies, moths, and the monarch monitoring project.

The Monarch Larva Monitoring Project is a community science project that tracks monarch butterfly populations from caterpillars to butterflies within the park. Volunteers will meet each week on Tuesday evenings at the Coldwater Spring parking lot and monitor two patches of milkweed with the assistance of a park staff person. Please note that this program is a weekly commitment beginning with this mandatory training at our downtown Saint Paul headquarters on Wednesday, May 29th from 6-7:30 PM. The weekly commitment begins on June 4 and concludes on August 27. Volunteers are asked to commit to attending weekly because consistency in data reporting is important. If you aren't able to commit to every week, that is OK - but please let us know before hand.
