Never fear ! My fingers are crossed that the migrating Monarchs will be on their way. There have been many sightings in Southern Canada this week so I'm hoping that a few Monarchs will wing their way to Cape May. Please deadhead your butterfly bushes and let native goldenrod and milkweeds grow so our favorite insects can bulk up on nectar to power their flight to Mexico :-) To see where Monarchs have been spotted check out Journey North!
If you're interested in tagging and releasing a monarch come to one of our tagging demos. They're Wed, Fri, Sat, and Sun at 2pm in the pavilion next to the Hawk Watch platform. We would love to see you and share some fun Monarch facts!

Hope to see you here at the Point soon! Best wishes for butterfly sightings!
