This blog was created because I wanted a place to share what I’ve learned regarding monarch butterflies and milkweed plants. I started raising monarchs in 2014, although I was exposed to them much earlier in life. My plan is to post true stories of my experiences. I’ll also post special videos and photos to help you with your monarch and milkweed adventures.

I’m not a professional, but I am a citizen scientist. I work to find answers to questions and issues related to raising my monarch butterflies. I keep a journal with important details and notes. I share my knowledge with others, and I’m excited to share this blog with you. I can’t wait to learn something new this year. Please join me on this wonderful adventure!
