Monarch Tagging

Hurstville Interpretive Center, Jackson County

Saturday, September 14, 2019

What lives only eight months, migrates over 2,000 miles, and spends the winter in Mexico?  It’s the monarch butterfly.  Join Jackson County Conservation naturalists in learning about the monarch’s journey south for the winter every Saturday in September. September 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th at 1:00 pm at the Hurstville Interpretive Center.  After a short presentation about monarchs, we’ll grab some nets and head out on the prairie to catch and tag this year’s migrants.  Program is free and all ages are welcome!  For more information contact Jackson County Conservation at (563) 652-3783.  The Hurstville Interpretive Center is located 1 mile north of Maquoketa on Hwy 61.
