Honors Course Information

This tutorial aims seeks to engage students in the latest scholarship and conservation efforts focused on the Natural History of Monarch butterflies. We will explore the life cycle of the Monarch, it’s migratory patterns, and the neural mechanisms by which they navigate during their journey to/from Mexico. An objective of the course is to develop ‘citizen scientists’ committed to community outreach and preservation of this unique natural wonder. Finally and weather permitting, the group will work together to plant and develop ‘Monarch Stations’, learn how to ‘culture’ and tag monarchs in preparation for release into the wild. Novel approaches for science outreach to the community as well as for new approaches to preserve the Monarch migration will be explored.
