Journey North for kids

Last spring students viewed the "Journey North" web site where they learned about monarch butterfly migration. This past Sunday I was able to experience that migration first hand while golfing along the ocean in Hyannisport. Coming up on the 17th hole overlooking a marsh I saw two or three monarch butterflys floating in the breeze. By the time we got to the green monarch butterflys were everywhere! It was very exciting for me! They were much larger than I expected! Monarchs can be seen flying along the Atlantic coastline from Maine to South Carolina at this time of year. They are on their way to Mexico.

When I am not in the library or computer lab you can find me running or biking along the roads of Cape Cod. Two big hairy dogs run along with me so I am not hard to miss.
