The little surge in monarchs that we witnessed this morning quickly ended, and the afternoon was very quiet, alas. We don't know if there will be many monarch tomorrow or just a few, but we'll be out there counting and searching, and if there's a noticeable change in monarch numbers we will let you know.
We did have the year's largest audience for our tagging demo this afternoon, with well over 100 in attendance. Demos continue every Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday through 10/16.
