Monarch Butterfly Conservation Kickoff
Saturday, June 21, 2014 - 1:00pm to 3:00pm
Ages: All ages
$10/individual, $38/family

Be there at the beginning as we prepare for raising gorgeous Monarch caterpillars here at LSNC. This is the first step towards our Monarch Butterfly Migration Festival in September where we will tag and release butterflies ready for their journey south. Help us develop our “Monarch Waystation” and learn how to create your own at home. We will get you started with your own milkweed plant or seeds! Games and activities will teach us about their interesting life cycle and what we can do to help them throughout their sometimes hazardous lives in the wild. Your registration fee directly contributes to our conservation efforts.
