Workshop topics will include: basics of the monarch life cycle and migration, population trends, and conservation issues. Learn about milkweed and monarch monitoring tools, what we currently know about monarchs in the West, and recently initiated efforts to address knowledge gaps, including IDFG's survey efforts. Workshop instructors will discuss and demo the new Western Monarch Milkweed Mapper, a citizen science project to track milkweeds and monarchs across the West, and connect participants to ongoing research and conservation efforts in the state. There will also be a special segment on gardening for monarchs.
The workshop will take place over two days: an evening classroom session on Friday and a field component on Saturday. During the field component we will search milkweed patches for adult and immature monarchs, practice data collection, and tie in lessons learned from the Friday night info session.
