Journey North

Join the Journey North Monarch & Milkweed Project to track key phenological events in the life cycle of monarch butterflies and milkweed. An easy-to-use data entry portal allows you to quickly submit data. In the spring, track first arrivals of migratory monarchs and first emergence of milkweed. During summer, document where monarch breeding and feeding activities and milkweed presence. And in the fall, report monarch roost sites and peak migration events as monarchs travel to overwintering sites. Watch the migration unfold on real-time maps and subscribe to receive weekly news updates. Beyond monarchs and milkweed, you can help Journey North track the migration of hummingbirds, orioles, loons, swallows, and many more species.
