Five monarchs all hatched from chrysalises on October 7, 2010

If swamp milkweed hadn't been available through September, these would not have ever existed. Tomorrow, they will be released on flowers from which they can gain sustenance before beginning their migration to Mexico, where they MAY remain through the winter and return to the U.S. in spring to attempt to reproduce and help keep their species alive.
