Monarch Tagging

Prairie Creek Recreation Area, Jackson County

Saturday, September 10, 2022

Learn about the monarch butterfly’s life cycle and their migration to central Mexico. Then we'll head out to the prairie to catch monarchs and participate in a citizen science project to place stickers on the butterfly’s wings to help researchers learn more about their migration. Nets will be provided. All ages welcome.  

Meet at the Prairie Creek Pavilion. 

Registration is required at least 48 hours in advance. For more information or to register, call (563) 652-3783 or email
