Busy weekend

ABC News in Philadelphia wasn't enough, so NBC 10 in Philly also sent a reporter down to show our monarchs to a wide audience. We love the coverage! Check it out at:!/news/local/Butterfly-Invasion/131366043

Perhaps thanks to all the great press, we had record attendance at our tagging demos this weekend, with over 100 people on Saturday and more than 150 on Sunday! Thanks to all who have come to Cape May Point to enjoy the magic of monarch migration. Photo above is Seasonal Technician Rebecca Allmond describing our research to the crowd at Saturday's demo. Below, a young-at-heart volunteer releases a newly tagged monarch.

See you at the Point!
