Celebrate Latino Conservation Week by learning all about the unique insect that we share with our South American neighbors. 

Monarch butterflies are a source of fascination for many, partly due to their brilliant color and large size, but also because of their ability to migrate between Mexico and N. America.

Join the park naturalist at the Kell Visitor Center to learn all about this unique insect. We'll talk about their characteristics and adaptations, why and when they migrate, their life cycle, and more. Visitors will get an opportunity to learn how they can be involved in citizen science and conservation efforts for monarch butterflies. We'll end our session with a walk outside to identify monarch eggs and larvae.
