Mission-Monarch Blitz

July 24 @ 8:00 am - August 2 @ 5:00 pm

Monarchs are in the Annapolis Valley and laying eggs at this time. In order to determine the health of population of this endangered species, we needed to survey for their presence.

The annual Mission-Monarch Blitz occurs during the week between 24 July and 2 August. If you know of milkweed plots, I urge you to survey them and report all the Monarchs that you see, whether egg,
caterpillar, chrysalis or adult. If do not see any after a thorough search, report that also.

The Monarch Monitoring Blitz is international and information is available
http://www.namonarchs.org/international-monarch-monitoring-blitz/
In Canada we are asked to report our results to Mission-Monarch at
https://www.mission-monarch.org/

The Monarch is listed as one of the endangered species in Nova Scotia and we
need to know how it is doing during its breeding season here. So please
help.
