Do you remember catching butterflies as a kid? We loved collecting caterpillars, milkweed and even watching them turn into butterflies. But since I've gotten older I haven't seen as many Monarchs around. I figured it was because I spent too many hours behind the computer screen and not enough time outside. But recently found out that in 1991 75% of the monarch population that migrated to Mexico froze to death in a harsh winter. Each year since then there have been lower numbers found each winter migrating. So, what do we do about it?
