"Migration Map by Season", A map showing various paths Monarchs take during their migration, https://www.pinterest.com/.

  • The group that lives west of the Rocky Mountains will migrate to California.
  • Those that live east of the Rockies will either travel to the Midwest or to the East Coast searching for milkweed.
