The workshop will prepare educators to engage students in citizen science data collection about the phenology, or timing, of milkweed development and the interactions between milkweed plants and the community of milkweed herbivores and pollinators. Using intersections of both scientific and indigenous ways of building knowledge, educators will be immersed in the ecological relationships of monarchs and milkweed, learn to make careful observations of milkweed plants, analyze and discuss data, and consider how to use data to make predictions and restoration decisions.
