The Monarch’s Amazing Migration: a Status Report
October 21, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The monarch butterfly undergoes one of the most extraordinary migrations in the animal kingdom, butterflies across America and Canada flying south to only a handful of Mexican mountain valleys. But that phenomenon is endangered as monarch numbers have plummeted in recent years, compromised by climate, Midwestern “milkweed deserts,” and logging in Mexico. How are this year’s monarch’s doing? National monarch expert Dr. Chip Taylor, founder and director of Monarch Watch, the organization that has started placing monarch waystations across the country, joins us from his Kansas base to share the creature’s story and its status.
