The Monarch

Monarchs are classic migrators that arrive in North America roughly from March to July. Their fascinating life history has been closely catalogued by many resources. The progeny of these butterflies generally emerge in late summer to early fall and then migrate either to Mexico or to Coastal California to spend the winter.
