Monitoring Wildlife in Your Garden for Citizen Science

February 5, 2022

10:00 am – 11:30 am
Location: Online

Join Julia Whidden and Nancy Sheehan from the UW-Madison Arboretum to learn about citizen science and how to monitor wildlife in your garden for the Monarch Larva Monitoring Project (MLMP) and Journey North. Both programs rely on citizen scientists to collect data that advances our understanding of the distribution, abundance, and migration of a variety of insect and bird species, including monarch butterflies, hummingbirds, and more. Contribute to MLMP by monitoring your garden for monarch larva and milkweed, and report sightings of migratory species to Journey North.
