Report Sightings!

Did you know that you can report your sightings of monarch eggs, caterpillars, and butterflies?  This will allow your sightings to be part of one of the largest data bases recording sightings in North America – Journey North.  Go to, or just google “Journey North”.  You will be asked to select a password.  I recommend having Journey North remember your password for the future.  Then, just follow the directions to report your sightings.  You can go back later to look at them if you wish; and you can see your sightings represented on the United States map that tracks the migration.  Tip:  You don’t need to know your latitude and longitude as requested; they will figure it out for you.  It is, however, kind of fun to use their tool to figure it out for yourself.
