This week the weather will be so warm it’ll feel like early September when the monarch butterflies migrate. But most of them are in Texas now, safe from killing frosts. (You can watch their migration progress here.)
In August 2009, several of us from WQED visited Marcy Cunkelman to see her wonderful garden and learn about raising and tagging monarchs for the migration study.
Christa Majoras, who was an intern back then, recorded a video of our time there. The unedited footage sat dormant while Christa was away at school but now she’s back as an employee (yay!) and she edited Marcy’s monarch video.
I’m so happy to show you what we learned from Marcy! Enjoy this look back to the month of August when the flowers were blooming in her garden.
Many thanks to Marcy Cunkelman for hosting us and sharing her knowledge and to Christa Majoras for filming and editing the video.
