Granbury: Monarch Tagging

October 17, 2015 - 9:00am to 12:00pm
Capture, tag and release to continue their journey

Spend the day with us at the beautiful Acton Nature Center and learn the life
cycle of the amazing Monarch butterfly. The king of the butterflies is currently
in the midst of its epic migration from southern Canada to the mountains of
central Mexico. We will introduce you to the Monarch Watch Program that
has studied this incredible butterfly for twenty years. Your journey will
include education stations from the migration of the Monarch to the actual
capture and release of a live monarch. Volunteers will assist you with how to
tag Monarchs. How do they know where Mexico is? Come find out!
Long pants and closed toed shoes are recommended attire.
