4th Annual International Monarch Monitoring Blitz

Join volunteers across the United States, Canada and Mexico for the 4th Annual International Monarch Monitoring Blitz!

July 24th through August 2nd, the Blitz invites people across North America to look for milkweed plants and survey them for monarch eggs, caterpillars, chrysalises and butterflies. This information will help researchers identify priority areas for monarch conservation actions. Data gathered during the Blitz is uploaded to the Trinational Monarch Knowledge Network, where it is accessible for anyone to consult and download.
