ADV - MLMP Citizen Science Training
St Paul, MN 55108
The Monarch Larva Monitoring Project (MLMP) is a citizen science project involving volunteers from across the United States and Canada in monarch research. It was developed by researchers at the University of Minnesota to collect long-term data on larval monarch populations and milkweed habitat. The overarching goal of the project is to better understand how and why monarch populations vary in time and space, with a focus on monarch distribution and abundance during the breeding season in North America. As an MLMP volunteer, your contributions will aid in conserving monarchs and their threatened migratory phenomenon, and advance our understanding of butterfly ecology in general.
At this special workshop for Minnesota Master Naturalists, you’ll learn about monarch biology and the MLMP, and gain hands-on practice with several data collection activities. You’ll leave the workshop with specific knowledge on how to choose and monitor an MLMP site, enter your data on-line, interpret your findings, and engage your friends, family members, and neighbors in an exciting science research project. Get all 8 hours of Advanced training in 1 workshop!
