Community Education - Spring Summer 2022
Join Carpenter Nature Center and discover the amazing world of the Monarch Butterfly.
We will start by learning about the life cycle of a butterfly, their importance in the environment and their amazing migration to Mexico. We will also catch, tag and release wild monarchs. This data is then submitted to Monarch Watch and used for scientific research across North America. (Note: We will not be able to catch or release butterflies in the event of rain.)
This year we will also be learning how to look for and identify the OE parasite that is affecting Monarchs nationwide.
All children must be accompanied by an adult.
