Welcome to the Monarch Larva Monitoring Project online training course and thanks for your interest in monarchs! In this online course, you’ll learn about their amazing annual cycle of breeding, migrating, and overwintering and how to identify all life stages of monarchs. You’ll also learn how you can contribute to our understanding of this incredible insect by joining the Monarch Larva Monitoring Project, or the MLMP. The instructors for this course are Karen Oberhauser, Wendy Caldwell, Kelly Duhn, and Kelly Nail.

Why are monarchs great citizen science subjects? First, a lot of people working together can do a lot to understand this insect that covers such a large area. Second, monarchs are easy to observe and identify and have an iconic status as a symbol of the natural world and our connections to it. Finally, the MLMP is fun for everyone!
