Heavy rain and wind

Cape May is currently experiencing lots of rain and wind due to a coastal storm, the type of storm we call a "Nor'easter".  We don't expect any monarchs to be migrating through the storm, and butterfly-viewing conditions don't get much worse than this.  Still, our team will be at Cape May Point State Park on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 2 pm for our tagging demos.  We might not have a monarch to tag each day, but we can still share the story of this remarkable insect and describe our research efforts.  And we're still hoping for a good migration of monarchs next week after the storm passes.
