At Duke Farms, August marks Monarch and Meadow Month as we focus on the multitude of magnificent stories of the interactions between and among this biodiverse ecosystem. The monarch butterfly is certainly one of the featured creatures, but as the month unfolds, you will soon discover through activities, lesson plans, videos, book links, and creative resources, much more about why our meadows need to be maintained and preserved.
Monarchs make an incredible 4,000-mile journey that spans 4 whole generations. How does a small butterfly make such a tremendous journey? Discover the secret behind monarch migration - this resource discusses monarch generations and migrations, including maps and videos for further discussion.
