Description:
 Monarch butterflies make the most amazing migration of any insect in the world and itís happening right here, right now! Join Naturalist Pat Sutton to learn all about the Monarchís life cycle and journey from Mexico to the U.S. and Canada in the spring, and back to Mexico in the fall for the winter months. Their future depends on healthy milkweed stands here in the U.S. where their numbers multiply (spring through fall). Learn about the native milkweeds that you can plant in your garden to help create a path of milkweed from Mexico to Canada that will benefit Monarchs.

Sutton has studied the natural world for thirty years. She and her husband, Clay Sutton, wrote the landmark book, Birds and Birding at Cape May, an in-depth result of their efforts over many years documenting and protecting the migration and the Cape May area. Suttonís wildlife garden is a teaching garden included on many tours.
