I knew about the monarch migration broadly, but not the wonderful fact of it being more generations to return than to go south!

During the earlier parts of covid, I wrote a little for Breaking Ground on how to live with a generation ship mindset, including this: https://breakingground.us/all-aboard-the-generation-ship/

"Weave Essential Knowledge into All Parts of Life

In generation ship stories, the children of the ship play with models of the engines. Algal food protocols are conserved through nursery songs. The walls are painted with murals of the history of the ship and the future it was built for. All these things are too important to be left only to classroom instruction. The same is true in our own lives. Whatever is most important should be before our eyes and knit into our bones."
