Magical Michoacan


In February, Cindy joined a small group of avid monarch fans to travel to the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve, which protects overwintering sites for approximately 250 million monarchs representing the entire population east of the Rockies. The tour was led by Kimberlee Bailey and Susan Meyers, who invited Cindy and five others to journey with them to tour the rich cultural and natural heritage of this World Heritage Site and to gather tagged butterflies for further research by Journey North and Monarchs Across Georgia.  It was a trip of a lifetime, not only for the magical and emotional experience, but the chance to meet so many who are fiercely passionate monarch advocates from all over the world.
