If you are a teacher, scout or 4-H leader, anyone interested in learning more about monarch butterflies in Arizona sign up for Monarch Educator Workshop at the Valley Verde Birding and Nature Festival in Cottonwood on Saturday, April 28. This is a great opportunity to learn more details about the monarch life cycle, the migration through Arizona and monarch citizen science opportunities.
You can also see up to the minute news about monarchs on the Southwest Monarch Study Facebook page. This is a public page - you don't need a Facebook account to access.
The SW Monarch Study also has a discussion group to share monarch related sightings and new studies in more detail. You can learn more about this group and join here.
