Monarch Watch, a citizen science project, tracks monarch butterflies on their annual migration to Mexico as a means of helping to conserve these beauties.
Join us at McCloud Nature Park and help us catch, tag, and release monarchs as part of Monarch Watch! Be sure to bring your butterfly net! Additionally, each family will be given a milkweed pod (while supplies last) to plant at home, providing monarchs with valuable food and nourishment when they return to Indiana in 2018.
Recommended for ages 8+.
This program is FREE to attend, and no advance registration is required.
Hiking terrain info: Easy to moderate difficulty; natural surfaces; up to 2 miles
