My group went out to the ditch on Tuesday, May 2 and it was HOT. We were surprised at how hot it was even though there was plenty of wind. We took our measurements before the milkweeds were mistakenly cut down, so we had great data. The milkweeds were growing steadily, but we didn’t see many signs of monarchs. We worked well together and were able to quickly get our data. Overall it was a good week, but I’m nervous to see the damage that was done when the milkweeds were cut down.
