Monarch Tagging at Buxton Park
Saturday, September 19, 2020
Come to Buxton Park and discover more 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.
