Monarchs Are Everywhere at Chief Logan Lodge

September 1, 2019 @ 1:01 am

Monarchs are everywhere at Chief Logan Lodge. The butterflies, if a fourth generation, are prepping for their migration to Mexico. The pollinator zone at the state park lodge is a feeding ground for caterpillars that have now emerged from a chrysalis as Monarch Butterflies.

Meet Cole at 10:00 a.m. in the front lobby of Chief Logan Lodge. There is no fee to participate and the program is open to anyone interested.

Cole is one of several state park naturalists assisting Monarch Joint Venture, a nationwide survey group, and DNR Biologist Sue Olcott in a Citizen Science Project. Anyone interest in attending a planned slow walk up a paved road to survey the population is welcome. You’ll learn about field biology work as well and help collect data in a meandering walk. The hillside at the state park lodge is not mowed and therefore the four different generations during the spring to fall season of Monarchs have an adequate food source for the caterpillars. Monarch’s need and feed on milkweed vegetation.

Photographers are welcome.
