The Monarch Watch
I have created this group to help observe the conditions of local Milkweed plants, and the Monarch Butterfly. I will be setting up several documents and a website with special links to websites where you can find information about these creatures, and how to raise wild caterpillars if you wish. Monarch Butterflies need all the help they can get in the coming seasons, so it's up to you to make the next step!
- No profanity
- No inappropriate submissions of dead or injured butterflies/caterpillars (this group will not tolerate that)
- Keep all submissions Monarch Butterfly related only (includes Milkweed plants)
- Unlimited daily submissions for all members
- Have fun, and educate yourselves if you need to know more!
Every year, Monarch Butterflies make the hardest journey of their lives. We call it the Monarch Migration, which is when thousands of butterflies fly all the way down to Mexico during the colder months. They reside mostly all around North America, so if you see any, take note and watch to see how well they're doing in the area.
Milkweed plants are vital as their offspring depend on it for their entire caterpillar stage. If you would like to help, donate or buy Milkweed seeds to plant around your garden and encourage these butterflies to lay their eggs.

Do your part, they need you!
