Mission Monarch 2017 Blitz Brings Together Canada, Mexico and the United States

For the first time, all three countries in North America are joining forces and inviting their citizens to document monarch breeding sites across the continent by heading outdoors at the same time of year. This Montréal Space for Life project, developed and headed up by a team from the Insectarium, encourages everyone in Mexico, the United States and Canada to take part in the Mission Monarch Blitz, to be held from July 29 to August 6, 2017. What’s the objective? To find milkweed plants, check for monarch caterpillars on the plants and report their observations on the Mission Monarch website. This time of year was chosen to teach people about monarchs and involve them in protecting these butterflies, since it is when they start laying their eggs and monarch caterpillars can be seen in all three countries. Visit Mission Monarch and join today!
