September is the month that most monarchs will migrate through our region on the way to Mexico where they will spend the winter. The Monarch Alliance, a program of the Potomac Valley Audubon Society, will be sponsoring activities during the month of September to celebrate this special event.

Join Joette Borzik on September 9, at the historic Claymont Mansion, from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. 

Participants should meet Joette on the Claymont entrance road at the gate where a wetland meets the access driveway. From there, Joette will teach and help guide participants on the process of tagging monarchs. 

The entrance to the historic Claymont Mansion is located at 667 Huyett Road and is marked by a street sign that says "Claymont Mansion". From Charles Town, take 340 South towards Berryvieele for approximately 4 miles. Take the exit labeled Augustine Avenue (on right). Then take an immediate left onto Huyett Rd. and go 1.8 miles. You will then see the Claymont entrance road.

The Monarch Discovery Day events will be free and open to anyone with an interest.  Children are welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult. 

Pre-registration is strongly encouraged but not required.  In the event of cancellation, notice will be posted on the PVAS site by 9 p.m. the night before the event.
