Monarch Waystation Soundmap (MWS)

Welcome to Monarch Waystation Soundmap! This is a multi-year initiative to plant milkweed and native wildflowers on roadsides throughout Western monarch migratory habitat. Each fall, Alejandro Botijo and friends hop on their bicycles and follow the migration of the monarchs from the Pacific Northwest to the Central California coast. Along the way, they create monarch waystations by planting milkweed and wildflowers on roadsides and other underutilized land. This map documents the geolocations for the waystations to allow collaborators to visit the waystations to water the milkweed in the spring and even plant a few more seeds. For suggestions on how to engage with the soundmap, give a read to our Ways of Listening. Thanks for coming by!
