Learn what you need to know to participate in this fascinating Citizen Science project.  The Monarch Larva Monitoring Project (MLMP) asks citizens to become involved in collecting data that are used to explain the distribution and abundance patterns of monarch butterflies in North America.  This field workshop will take place in the Outdoor Classroom and the Common Milkweed patch at Prairie Ridge Ecostation.  To register, contact Kim Smart at kimberly.smart@naturalsciences.org or 919.733.7450 x673.
