Monarch Watch Thu., Sep. 5, 1-2 p.m.; Tue., Sep. 10, 1-2 p.m., Thu., Sep. 12, 10-11 a.m.; Sat., Sep. 14, 10-11 a.m. During early September, we will catch and tag monarchs to help Monarch Watch collect data for their citizen science program. Children and adults help catch the Monarchs using butterfly nets. Naturalist Lynda Price places the tags on the discal cell of the butterfly close to the center of lift and gravity for the butterfly and will not impede flight. We will also catch and identify the other butterflies in flight. Cancelled if it is raining. Free.
