Monarch Madness

McFarland Park, Story County

Wednesday, September 11, 2019

Fall is the time of one of the  world's greatest migrations! We will witness an animal that weighs less than a small paperclip on its journey south to Mexico. Come learn about amazing Monarch butterflies and why they are making this journey. We'll gently capture and tag some butterflies in a nationwide citizen science effort! This family-friendly program is free but registration is required by 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 4, 2019.
