LIVE Monarch Larva Monitoring Project: Northern (April 18)

Millions of monarch butterflies flying

Be a community scientist with the Monarch Larva Monitoring Project (MLMP)! The MLMP team from MJV and the UW-Madison Arboretum co-lead this virtual one-day training on how to collect data that contributes to our knowledge about the monarch population. Participants learn about monarch biology, monitoring procedures, and data entry protocols and are able to ask monarch biologists their questions about monarchs and monitoring.

This live virtual training will focus on the western monarch population in the northern US (North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Delaware, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, and all Canadian provinces). The timing of this course is approximately based on timing of the monarch migration and milkweed emergence. These trainings will focus on specific points related to these regions, but if a different date works better for your time or schedule, feel free to choose that date!
