Learn all about the Monarch butterflies' migration.

Bring your homeschool group into the park to learn about the Migration of the Monarch Butterfly. We'll play an interactive migration game that will allow us to go through the full lifespan and migration of a Monarch butterfly. If Ranger Amy has caught any Monarch butterflies we will talk about the importance of citizen science, tag and release them.
