Monarch Tagging

Saturday, September 14, 2019

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. All ages invited, under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
