Only Four Days Left To Participate in the Monarch Blitz!

August 4, 2022 by Team Journey North

Participate in the 6th International Monarch Monitoring Blitz from July 29–August 7. Report your monarch and milkweed observations to Journey North.

2022 International Monarch Monitoring Blitz

Please keep participating the 6th annual International Monarch Monitoring Blitz. 

During the Blitz, from July 29–August 7, report your observations of monarchs (all stages) and milkweed to Journey North. Due to monarchs’ large range during the summer months, volunteer observations are critical to our collective understanding of monarch populations and habitat at this time of year. 

And in the wake of the International Union for Conservation of Nature recently listing the migratory monarch as endangered on its Red List of Threatened Species (note: monarchs are not listed under the U.S. Endangered Species Act), your participation is vital now more than ever!
