The news from Xerces Society is that the count for the wintering western monarchs is up from last season. Just a little, but it still warrants a hurrah! I’m anxious to hear the count for the monarchs in their Mexico winter quarters.
On Feb 25th 2-3pm EST, Monarch Joint Venture and the National Conservation Training Center will present a webinar focusing on western monarchs. Pre-registration and details.
There is still a lot of work to be done to rebuild habitat for monarchs and to conserve space for their breeding, migrating and overwintering habitats. So plan to do your part; plant some extra milkweed plants this spring!
