Monarchs on the Move!
Each fall thousands of monarch butterflies make their way through Texas on the way to their overwintering grounds in México. They depend on big grasslands (like prairies), suburban backyard gardens, and even pocket prairies in the middle of the city to fuel up on energy-rich nectar and for milkweed for their young. Learn about monarchs, their migration, and what you can do to help them on their journey with this live broadcast from an urban pocket prairie.
