Georgia: Save the Monarch
Georgia is a unique environment ranging from mountains, to piedmont, coastal plain. It is also on the monarch migration route. The Journey North map shows the spring migration that is happening now.Georgians therefore have an opportunity to do their part to save the beloved Monarch butterflies. We have partnered with the Rosalynn Carter Butterfly Trail to extend the trail from Plains, Georgia to the rest of the state and the southeast.
You can join the Rosalynn Carter Butterfly trail for free by entering your garden into their database (www.jimmycarter.info/Carterbutterflytrail.htm). You can also certify your garden through Monarchs Across Georgia (http://www.eealliance.org/pollinator-habitat-certification-program) for $10.00. Both of these certification sites will provide a beautiful certification sign for a small additional cost.
To learn about ongoing conservation efforts and how you can help provide much needed data on monarch health , movements of adults, and where monarchs are laying eggs click on our Conservation and Citizen Science links to the right.
