Monarch Citizen Science

monarch monitoring

The Monarch Citizen Science program conducts bi-weekly monarch counts at monarch overwintering sites in Monterey County from November to February. Data collection includes estimating number of monarchs present, collecting weather data, and recording habitat data and then entering this data into a database for scientific analysis. This program may also include year-round monarch habitat monitoring.
