Outdoor Monarch Life Cycle Kits: on SALE

378 724 Monarch Research Project

TODAY is a GOOD day to think about SPRING

Last summer we tested out a simple monarch rearing option for friends who might not have the space for a Monarch BioTent or who were looking for a low-key way to test out monarch rearing. Our Outdoor Monarch Life Cycle Kits were popular and they’re coming back for 2021.

From NOW through March 14, 2021 you can order an OMLK at last year’s price: $40. After March 14, 2021 pricing will increase to $50. [update: September 2021: this sale has ENDED: please visit the OMLK page for updated information)
