Seen Any Monarch Caterpillars or Butterflies this Summer?
Last year, much to the elation of my three-year-old, I discovered three monarch caterpillars crawling on a milkweed plant in our wildflower garden. We quickly gathered them up, placed them in a large tank, and watched as they got fat, created a chrysalis, and eventually hatched out as butterflies. We then set them free – with a healthy education on the crazy-long, nearly 3,000 mile journey they were about to undertake to their overwinter forest in Mexico.
