In the western US, you can use the Western Monarch Milkweed Mapper to report sightings of monarch butterflies and milkweed. The western part of their migration isn't as well understood, so that's why they're collecting data on it.

Planting non-native varieties can actually be bad for the monarchs, because that can disrupt their migration schedules.

4. Would be willing to duplicate care in terms of a gender-assessment, specifically so that I can meet my family's (unreasonable) requirements and salvage my relationship with them rather than having to do anything radical?
