Did you Know:
Most monarch butterflies seen in Ohio during the summer live about a month. They search for nectar, mate and lay eggs. As summer days get shorter and fall approaches, a new generation of monarch butterflies is born and it has a different goal. These monarchs join one of North America’s great migrations. Monarchs east of the Mississippi River migrate south to forests in the mountains of central Mexico where they spend the winter in huge colonies, protected from winter’s weather. How a creature that has never made the journey to Mexico finds its way is a mystery that scientists are still working to uncover!
