Monarch Migration Festival
Sunday, September 12, 2021 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm
Ages: All ages
$7 Individual Admission | $25 Pollinator Partners Pack Add-on

We’re so excited to be back in person this year! Come join the Leslie Science & Nature Center as we celebrate the incredible journey of the Monarch butterfly in person.

Every year, waves of these butterflies migrate over mountains, deserts, and plains in the United States to reach their wintering grounds in Mexico. By registering for this event, you are helping contribute to the conservation efforts put in place to protect these incredible butterflies locally and nationally. In fact, $5.50 of your registration fee goes directly to support the rearing and conservation efforts locally! Registration is required to attend this event. And, for those who register, you will have the opportunity to be a part of the main event: releasing your very own monarch butterfly, or sponsoring a butterfly for us to release in our pollinator garden.

Back by popular demand, we are also including the option to purchase you very own pollinator pack! Limited quantities available, reserve your pack today!
