Each year the fourth generation of the magnificent monarch butterfly may migrate up to 2,500 miles in
North America to central Mexico for the winter. Monarch Watch Association, a citizen science project,
has tagged and monitored migrating monarchs since 1992. Join us for a program on the natural history of
monarchs. The rest of the day will be spent capturing, identifying butterflies, tagging the monarchs for Monarch Watch, and releasing butterflies. Contact the Site Interpreter at 618-657-2064.
