Join PVAS and The Monarch Alliance for a Monarch Tagging Event at Cool Spring Preserve
The Monarch butterfly’s migration to Mexico began in early August, near Winnipeg, Manitoba. The migration peaks in our area the third week in September, so this is a perfect time for Monarch tagging!
This is a family-friendly event open to everyone, although children should be accompanied by an adult.
Participants should meet at the back deck (just down from the parking lot) of the Nature Center. Please wear comfortable walking shoes, bring along your mask, insect repellent and drinking water. Tagging nets will be provided.
