This record contains monarch butterfly observations collected using a pollard walk (following SOP 2) during 2017 at custom 2017 GRTS draw sites within select monitoring areas (see ServCat record 103367).

Areas monitored included Balcones Canyonlands (TX), Hagerman (TX), Washita (OK), Neal Smith (IA), Necedah (WI) NWRs and several locations near the town of Lamoni, Iowa and private conservation lands in northern Missouri.
