Earth Day Event – Thursday, April 22, 7 to 8:30 p.m.
Monarchs need our help! These beautiful butterflies are essential in contributing to the health of our planet, but climate change, habitat loss, and pesticide use are threatening our important friend. This Earth Day join Betty McCulloch who has tagged over 8,300 monarch butterflies. Learn how and where to tag, and explore past tagging observations. Betty will teach you about the monarch life cycle, migration, and the process of tagging. Discover what you can do to help the monarch from becoming extinct, and gain appreciation for this small but mighty butterfly.
