July 29th to August 5th are the dates to join the Monarch Monitoring Blitz! Eastern and Western monarch populations have declined at the overwintering sites but it is difficult to determine the breeding population across North America. This “shout out” for Citizen Scientists in the United States, Canada and Mexico data reports may help fill the gaps in understanding. “With enough reports, your information will provide a snapshot that helps scientists understand the range and population size of late summer breeding monarchs across North America.”
