To glimpse the passing of a single butterfly is always delightful. But can you imagine the astounding sight and sound of a million orange monarch wings fluttering into the sunlight? The annual 3,000-mile monarch migration starts in Mexico’s Central Highlands—remote wintering grounds where an infant generation of butterflies finds itself anew each year. Join Expedition Leader Astrid Frisch for a virtual journey into the thick mountain forests where butterflies blanket tree trunks like gossamer bark. Learn about the butterfly’s phenomenal journey, it’s life cycle across North America, and the conservation efforts that are saving this most elegant species. In our special webinar, Astrid shares the marvels of the monarch migration and what it’s like to travel with a small quiet group into the magical swirl of their quivering orange midst.
