  • monarch lifecycle
  • migration patterns
  • challenges facing monarchs
  • tagging practices
  • how to become a citizen scientist and
  • ways to encourage monarchs into your yard

In this course, the above information will be provided to you, and you will be shown how to become a citizen scientist.  What is the role of a citizen scientist? You will be introduced to how monarch populations are monitored, given an overview of tagging programs, shown tips for creating monarch-friendly habitats, and using best practices for maintaining a monarch butterfly garden (monarch waystation).
