 “Monarchs and their travels through the Catskills”
Every autumn, around three million Monarch butterflies will travel around 3,000 miles to inhabit the mountains of central Mexico or small groves of trees along California’s coast to avoid the cold of the Northeast. Many of these butterflies will travel through or depart from the Catskills. Their migration is a natural, survival instinct that has amazed people around the world as there is no other North American butterfly that migrates the way that most birds do. This presentation will give you a better understanding of this yearly miracle that happens right here in our backyards.
