You may have noticed a lot more Monarchs in your backyard this summer, and now during the fall migration. Turns out it’s been a great year for the beautiful butterfly. Our friends at WCAX-TV talk with conservation biologist Kent McFarland with the Vermont Center for Ecostudies about why we’re seeing so many Monarchs this summer.

If you spot a butterfly in your backyard there are two sites that track Monarchs: https://journeynorth.org and www.mission-monarch.org Both allow you to add your own observations to track Monarch migrations.
