A Butterfly Migration Super Highway Could Bring Millions Of Monarchs Through Massachusetts This Fall
Every year, millions and millions of Monarch butterflies migrate from Mexico up to Canada and back down again, and when this magical phenomenon passes through the states, the sights are incredible. This fall, you’ll catch millions of butterflies traveling through Massachusetts as one of their migration super highways passes directly through our state. Once they travel down to the south, they overwinter until spring arrives. This phenomenon is highly studied by experts and can only be caught at certain times of the year… this is it. Keep your eyes peeled as millions upon millions of Monarch butterflies grace our state this fall.
