Citizen Science: Monarch Larva Monitoring Project at Long Island Children's Museum

Event description:

Be a citizen scientist and study monarch butterflies in LICM’s Milkweed Garden. By measuring plants, rainfall and monarch eggs you will be collecting real data that scientists at the University of Minnesota Monarch Lab can analyze! Your data will help them understand butterfly migration and will help conserve this threatened species. Meet at the front desk to collect information and see how these plants are habitat for visiting monarchs.
