Journey of the Monarch

October 5 @ 1:00 am - 2:30 pm

Every fall thousands of Monarch butterflies migrate south to Central Mexico! Giant City State Park is a great stopping point for these small creatures.
Come out and help the University of Kansas track these insects by participating in a tagging program. There will be a short introduction, and then we will head out to the field to catch and tag as many migrating Monarchs as we can find. This program is free and open to the public. Please call the Giant City Visitors Center at 618-457-4836 to register or for more information.
