Six Ways to Support Fall Monarch Migration

August 25, 2020 – By David Mizejewski, National Wildlife Federation – Each fall, monarch butterflies embark on an incredible migration to their wintering grounds. West of the Rockies, the population heads to the Pacific coast, where they gather in scattered roosts in the trees in central and southern California. The eastern population, which makes up the bulk of the monarch population in North America, travels from as far north as southern Canada down to a specific area in the mountains of Mexico called the Monarch Biosphere Reserve northwest of Mexico City. There they all gather at just a handful of roost spots at high elevation to wait out the winter.
