How do changes in Mexico and Canada affect Monarch Butterflies in Hamden? Construct a 'map' of our hemisphere with the migration routes of Monarchs. As your Monarch travels, lights will show that it takes a family to make a migration. Model the places that make Monarchs move. Plant milkweed here (and at your home) to make Hamden more healthful for this long distance commuter. Batteries included.
