Now is the time of year milkweeds reveal themselves among the dry grasses and rocks. The white fluff stands out in the landscape. The pollinated milkweed seeds are carried aloft by the white milkweed fluff. If you see milkweed you can participate in an important citizen science project contributing to mapping our local milkweed resources at the Western Monarch Milkweed Mapper.
You can also map Monarch sightings there as well.
