After "butterbiking" 10,201 miles with the monarch butterflies, Sara finished her 9.5 month bicycle migration/adventure. During her fourth Beyond a Book adventure Sara used her trip to be a voice for the monarchs and inspire future adventurers, scientists, and monarch stewards.
The monarch migration is a multi-generational, multinational migration sure to be one of the World's greatest natural wonders.
From March to December 2017, Sara followed the monarch butterflies from their overwintering grounds in central Mexico to Canada and back. She used her 10,201 mile bicycle trip to be a voice and spotlight for monarchs and conservation efforts.
