"Monarchs and Milkweed" with speaker Tannar Cliffe will be featured at the Delaware Otsego Audubon Society's public program on May 18, 2018, 7:30 PM at the Elm Park Methodist Church, 401 Chestnut St. in Oneonta. Tannar raised and released 177 Monarch butterflies in 2017 through Monarch Watch, a program managed by the University of Kansas in an attempt to document the fall flight routes of Monarchs born in the Northeast US and Southern Canada. Tagged Monarchs recovered during their five month resting period in Mexico reveal information about migration. This citizen effort will hopefully reveal where critical milkweed populations need to be conserved or enhanced. Interested attendees will receive milkweed seeds to take home. The program is free and refreshments will be offered.
