A Harvard Museum of Natural History Travel Program will take place Sunday, January 20 – Friday, January 25, 2012, entitled The Kingdom of the Monarchs. One of the worldâ€™s most astounding natural events occurs each year in North America, featuring one of its most unlikely creatures, the delicate monarch butterfly. Up to 300 million monarchs set flight on a remarkable 2,500-mile journey from the northeastern U.S. and Canada to their ancestral wintering grounds in the volcanic mountains of central Mexico. Until recently, the location of their breeding grounds remained a mystery. How an infant generation of butterflies finds it anew each year is still an enigma. Join this small group to experience this moving phenomenon, as well as Mexico â€™s charming colonial villages.Â The full itinerary and PDF of trip brochure will be available soon at www.hmnh.harvard.edu/travel/t_na_monarchs13.htm. $2,995 per person, with a $545 single supplement, if needed.Â Photo from www.nathab.com.
