Thursday update

A cold front is passing through Cape May, bringing northwest winds. We are seeing a gradual increase in monarchs around Cape May Point, and we expect numbers to increase over the next few days. We can't know, however, if we will see a few more monarchs or a lot more. Stay tuned for updates.

Remember that we have public programs every day for the next few weeks. Join our team at 2 pm in Cape May Point State Park every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday for a monarch talk and tagging demo. Meet at the East Shelter, the covered picnic pavilion adjacent to the hawk watch platform. On Monday through Thursday you can meet a monarch biologist at 1 pm at the Triangle Park in Cape May Point for a casual discussion of monarch studies, often with a tagging demo. Triangle Park is at the junction of Lighthouse and Coral Avenues.
