Hardcore Natural History: Small But Mighty: Monarch Butterfly Migration and Overwintering

Every fall, thousands of monarch butterflies migrate to Monterey County from all across the western United States to spend the winter clustering together at special overwintering sites.   But how do they get here?  And why do they spend the winter in certain groves of trees, but not others?  How do researchers know where the monarchs come from, or how many there are? Join Jessica Griffiths as she shares what we know and don't know about monarch migration and overwintering, and how we can help protect this magnificent butterfly and its habitat in Monterey County.
