Join Harris Center ecologists to survey for monarch eggs, caterpillars, and butterflies in a Harris Center-conserved milkweed patch in Peterborough. This morning of community science is offered as part of the International Monarch Monitoring Blitz and the Monarch Larva Monitoring Project, research efforts aimed at understanding and protecting monarch butterflies throughout North America. No experience necessary! Come prepared for sun, ticks, and other biting insects.

10:30 a.m. to noon in Peterborough. Exact location will be provided upon registration. Rain date: July 29. Space is limited, and registration is required.
