We saw a report from a friend in New York who tagged many monarchs today, so there's reason to believe that many more are on their way. We don't know when they'll arrive, but we do believe we'll have a few more big monarch days here at New Jersey's southern tip. We'll be sure to let you know whenever the numbers are increasing.
We'll keep watching through October. The field season for the CMBO Monarch Monitoring Project runs from Sept. 1 through Oct. 31, with time for data entry and analysis after that. Our Field Naturalists, show below, will keep counting, tagging, and educating right up to the end of the month.
