Journey South

This is an awesome program of tracking Monarchs and other traveling critters on their journey south. We've been doing this for several years.

In just tracking the monarch butterfly migration, we've posted sightings from our central IL location and from Grandma's big pasture in Kansas. It's a good lesson in longitude and latitude.

We've also sent butterfly letters to our Mexican neighbors where the Monarchs migrate in the winter. In the spring, we've received letters back. All in espanol.

A few weeks ago, we had dozens and dozens of butterflies (including Monarchs) in our alfalfa pasture. I was so sad to see the cutter go through for hay. But they're popping back up again.

Love this program. Check it out!
