It’s the time of year for Eastern Monarchs to migrate to Mexico! Want to help them on their journey? Plant milkweed in your garden for their long trip South, along with plants high in nectar to help fuel them for the journey. Instead of the typical fall plants like mums, try a variety high in nectar and similar in look – Aster! It’s difficult for Monarchs to find anything blooming at this time, and plants like milkweed and aster are definitely what they need to get to their destination. If you happen to come across a tagged Monarch, write down the number and report it to our Monarch Watch organization. They keep track of the migration and tally numbers over in Mexico. Happy Fall and a smooth winter to you all!
