Springfield Bog Metropark
Summit County, OH

Springfield Bog contains a planted prairie of 165 acres. 80%+ contains Partridge Pea amongst other plantings. I searched from 11am-4pm. I tagged 50 monarchs. Approximately 50% of the Monarchs were fresh and the other 50% were worn and it is doubtful they will migrate. I only tagged the fresh ones I could catch.
