Join our Monarch Larval Monitoring team! This training will prepare you to participate in MLMP, an international monitoring program. Monarch Larval Monitors go out in small teams from early June to early September to record egg and larval abundance on milkweed located here at Schlitz Audubon. We will learn to identify the 5 instars or larval stages of the monarch butterfly, and the types of milkweed they depend on. This provides important information regarding monarch butterfly distribution and abundance in the wild, as well as milkweed diversity and abundance.
