Monarch Butterfly  Migration

Still Stuck in Boone County, IN (+0 Miles)
November 7, 2006: Migration Day 34

It's pretty much like yesterday: overcast skies, 50 degrees F, winds out of the south, plus rain showers to dampen the day even more. Chris, the team's weather expert, hopes for a small window of favorable flying weather tomorrow.

In the Classroom

  • Today's Journal Question: These young whooping cranes are part of a new flock that is a reintroduced flock. What does it mean to be a reintroduced flock? For help in answering, see this photo overview of the project and these maps.
  • Migration Math: What are the whooper chicks eating? We are pleased to offer this lesson (with handout) written by Florida science teacher Julie Poth: Meal Deal.

Journey North is pleased to feature this educational adventure presented in cooperation with the Whooping Crane Eastern Partnership (WCEP).
