Why leave now?
Migration begins in August, when flowers are fresh, plants are green, and the days are still warm and long. In the fall, habitat changes quickly. Monarchs must travel to Mexico while they can still find food, water, daylight, and warm temperatures. As you track their journey south, look for connections between migration and changing habitat.
