Monarch life Cycle

The egg hatches in about 4 days.  The caterpillar then eats milkweed for 2 weeks.  The caterpillar is inside the Chrysalis for about 10 days then hatches as a Butterfly.  An adult butterfly lives 2 - 6 weeks.

Monarch Migration

Monarch Butterflies take five generations to complete a migration cycle.  During their migration they stop millions of times to eat, pollinating the entire time.

Finish Line

Hundreds of millions of Monarch Butterflies journey up to 3000 miles each year from the United States to their Wintering grounds in Mexico.

A Helping Hand

 We were able to save over 3700 caterpillars before their habitat was destroyed by road construction.  All but 2 were raised and released as adults.
