Travel to Texas This Spring to See Record Numbers of Monarch Butterflies

Texas could see around 300 million monarch butterflies this spring following what Travel + Leisure described as “the biggest wildflower bloom.

So if you were considering a trip to Texas this spring, you have yet another reason to go.Every spring, bluebonnets bloom throughout central Texas, especially in Hill Country, a picturesque region outside of Austin thats also known for its vineyards. According to Southern Living, The region experienced an above average rainfall this winter, which could lead to a megabloom.The megabloom, in turn, is expected to attract a record numbers of butterflies during their migration from Mexico to Canada.Photo by Roberta Guillen on Unsplash“Figures show the highest number of hectares covered since at least 2006,” Craig Wilson, director of the USDA Future Scientists Program and senior research associate in the Center for Mathematics and Science Education at Texas AM, told Texas AM Today.

“Monarch numbers are usually measured in hectares, so that means about 15 acres are being used for their breeding grounds in northern Mexico. That’s a really positive sign, especially since their numbers have been down in recent years.According to Wilson, milkweed is essential for monarch butterflies, and luckily its in plentiful supply in central Texas. Hes encouraging Texas residents to plant milkweed in their gardens now.Hoping to see the wildflowers while theyre in bloom? Southern Living reports that the best place to see them is in Big Bend National Park, which is in the western part of the state on the Mexican border.Just dont be one of those tourists behaving badly who caused the closure of Lake Eslinor, California during the poppy superbloom.
