Western Monarch Milkweed Mapper

This project is part of a collaborative effort to map and better understand monarch butterflies and their host plants across the Western U.S. Data compiled through this project will improve our understanding of the distribution and phenology of monarchs and milkweeds, identify important breeding areas, and help us better understand monarch conservation needs. Some of the key research questions that these data will help us answer include:

  • Where are different milkweed species growing in the West?
  • Where are monarchs occurring in the West?
  • Where are monarchs breeding in the West?
  • When is milkweed emerging and senescing (dying back) in the West?
  • How does milkweed phenology (life cycle) differ by species?
  • When is monarch breeding occurring in specific areas/regions of the West?
  • What types of habitats are different milkweed species associated with?

Your help is critical to the success of this project! Because monarchs and their host plants are found all across the western U.S., the best way to document them is to engage a multitude of volunteers and their cameras. You can participate in this effort by using this website to:

  • Upload your photos of monarchs and milkweeds;
  • Identify milkweeds using our milkweed key, which profiles over 40 milkweed species found in the west;
  • Submit data which will help researchers determine the distribution, phenology, and conservation needs of monarchs and milkweeds in the west; and
  • Learn about monarchs, their host plants, and ongoing conservation efforts for these species.

Sage Grouse Initiative Web Map Application

The SGI Interactive Web Map Application is free and available to the public, presenting cutting-edge geospatial data covering 100 million acres. The Sage Grouse Initiative science team has developed an easy-to-use web application that helps visualize, distribute, and interact with information about the sagebrush-steppe ecosystem.

All of the information can be easily visualized on top of physical maps or the latest satellite imagery. Users can quickly identify and compare areas of concern, evaluating potential restoration or prevention opportunities. Data can be imported from the web application directly into GIS software, which allows the public to customize the information for land management or conservation purposes. Data for individual counties can be downloaded using these simple instructions.
