Project Description

Monarch Magic banner

Supplementing Tropical Odyssey is the story of a local Monarch waystation.

Local resident and journalist Suzanne Herel created the waystation in her yard to support Monarch migration, documenting the experience through photography. She released dozens of Monarchs after watching them grow from caterpillars through the pupa stage to butterflies. In 2019, Herel expanded her research
into other butterflies, planting a variety of host plants, and witnessing the life stages of other butterfly species.
