Monarch Butterfly Tagging

Monarch butterflies are beautiful and unique migratory insects that migrate to Mexico for the winter, then return north over several generations while depending on milkweeds as their host plants for eggs and catipillars, as well as a clean environment in which to live. Join local butterlfy enthusiasts Alan and Barbara Mennig and your DCNR State Park Naturalist to learn more about these spectacular creatures while helping with actually tagging and releasing of monarchs to study and better understand their life histories and survivial needs. Be a citizen scientist and help send a Monarch butterly to its winter home in Mexico, 2500 miles away! Weather permitting with rain date the following Saturday (9/21). No reservations required.
