South East Monarch Watch Volunteers Needed
August 02, 2023
Help Mass Audubon capture and tag migrating monarchs at our sanctuaries by participating in the national Monarch Watch program! The Monarch Watch program is used by Mass Audubon to engage volunteers in the monarch's migration through data collection and tagging.
Monarch Watch volunteers will be trained and responsible for collecting migration data on monarchs by independently searching for, capturing, and tagging wild monarchs on our Southeast wildlife sanctuaries. Volunteers will learn how to identify, capture, handle, sex, and tag monarchs.
This volunteer position begins on August 21st and is needed until September 30th. Weekly requirements include visiting Allens Pond, Daniel Webster, North River, Oak Knoll or Tidmarsh and volunteers will be required to track their hours within the online volunteer platform. This position requires walking on sometimes uneven terrain and through tall grass. Walking distances vary by location.
Don't miss a beat on all the ways you can get outdoors, celebrate nature, and get involved.
