Monarch Tagging

Saturday, September 15, 2018

Come to Buxton Park and discover all about monarch butterflies, their unusual lifestyle and life cycle and their miraculous migration to Mexico. A Warren County Conservation Naturalist will teach you how to catch and handle a monarch, determine gender, and properly tag them in the wild as part of a national research project. All monarchs will be released after they are tagged. Bring a butterfly net if you have one, or share a park net if you don’t. Fun for the whole family! (under age 12 must be accompanied by an adult) This activity is free, but please pre-register by Friday, September 14, at (515) 961-6169 or visit Day/Date: Saturday, September 15 Time: 1:00 pm Location: Buxton Park (meet at the Gazebo) Age: All ages (under age 12 must be with an adult) Registration Deadline: Friday, September 14
