Be a citizen scientist this summer and study monarch butterflies in LICM’s Milkweed Garden. By measuring plants, rainfall and monarch eggs you will be collecting real data for scientists at the University of Minnesota Monarch Lab. Your data will help them understand butterfly migration and will help conserve this threatened species! Each Friday morning, take a walk through this garden and see how the plants grow and are a habitat for visiting monarchs. This program is made possible with the support of the Rob and Melani Walton Sustainability Solutions Initiatives at Arizona State University.

Ages: 4 and up.
