Adirondack Park and Preserve- Monarch of the North

When one thinks of wildlife in the Adirondacks white tail deer, moose, and bears naturally come to mind.  Yet every summer there are millions of Monarch Butterflies that spend part of their lives in the Adirondacks.

A Monarch Butterfly (Danaus plexippus) rests on a milkweed plant in the Shelving Rock area of the Adirondack Preserve in Northern New York State.
