Visit Mexico with us

If you have followed the Cape May Monarch Monitoring Project for a while, you probably remember that we arranged a tour of three of the Mexican Monarch Sanctuaries in February 2018.  You can see a gallery of photos from that trip here: http://www.mgnature.com/mgnature/Mexico18.html.


We are pleased to announce that we are going back in February 2020!  New Jersey Audubon is once again sponsoring a visit to Mexico, led by Monarch Monitoring Project Director Mark Garland, and visiting 3 of the Sanctuaries: Sierra Chincua, El Rosario, and Cerro Pel√≥n.  The trip runs from Feb. 21 to 27, and details may be found on the NJ Audubon website here: https://njaudubon.org/eco-travel/#monarchs.
If you love watching monarch butterflies, if you marvel at their amazing migrations, if you have seen hundreds clustering in the trees at Cape May Point, then magnify that sense of wonder a thousand times or more.  That's what it's like to visit Mexico, where countless millions of monarchs gather every winter.  There are many tours that visit one or two of the reserves, but ours is one of the very few that visits three.  Along the way we'll enjoy comfortable accommodations, tasty meals, fine camaraderie, and we'll even see a few birds along the way.

Spaces are limited, and our 2018 filled quickly.  We expect the same will happen on the upcoming trip.  For the full trip itinerary and registration information, send a message to travel@njaudubon.org and ask for information about the February 2020 trip to Mexico.  Join our group and you'll soon be witnessing sites like those shown below.
