Tucson went from one of its driest monsoons on record in 2020 to one of the wettest in 2021. The surrounding deserts sprang to life with all the rain, resulting in one of the most noticeable increases in butterflies in recent memory. Entomologist John Palting and Katy Prudic take us to Tanque Verde Falls to see massive amounts of American Snout and other species of butterflies dominating the landscape and tell us what this one year might mean for the future.
