Mapping the Monarchs
Any orange-and-black beauties in your neck of the woods? Add a photo to our Spring Monarch Migration 2013 Google map.
At last, it’s spring! Temperatures are getting warmer, plants are starting to flower, and, depending upon your location, your neighborhood might be playing host to a rabble of butterflies—monarchs stopping over on their annual northward journey from their overwintering habitat in Mexico.
Any orange-and-black beauties in your neck of the woods? Let us know, and share your photos! You can add an image or a comment to your hometown on our Spring Monarch Migration 2013 Google map.
