We will introduce you to the Monarch Watch Program which has studied this incredible butterfly for twenty years. Your journey will include
5 education stations; monarch life cycle, monarch art, migration, a puddling activity and the actual capture and release of live butterflies. Volunteers will assist you with how to gently capture and tag Monarchs. How do they know where Mexico is? Come find out!
