Monarch Tagging in Saugeen Shores Breaks Record!

2019 was another good year for pollinators and monarchs in Saugeen Shores. Much of this is attributed to local residents who are seeing the benefits of planting milkweed and native plants in their gardens and the growing interest of BGOSS.

Since BGOSS began tagging we have seen a steady growth in the number of monarchs tagged. We believe that if you plant it, they will come. And come they have.

2015: 81 monarchs tagged
2016: 80 monarchs tagged
2017: 275 monarchs tagged
2018: 893 monarchs tagged
2019: 1,516 monarchs tagged
