Monarch Butterfly Survey

Master Gardeners of San Diego County are launching a monarch butterfly survey. Little is known about how local monarchs and monarch gardens fare under environmental stress. Contact monarchsurvey@mgasdc.com to learn how you can help. Or, beginning in October, take the survey.
