This summer the museum has been fortunate enough to get to raise local monarch caterpillars, come on in to see them at different stages of their life! Just about everyday over the next few weeks we will have butterflies emerging from their chrysalides. We are not experts, but have been following rearing guidelines from the Monarch Joint Venture, and took a course through the Monarch Larva Monitoring Project.
