Monarch Watch, a citizen science project, tracks monarch butterflies on their annual migration to Mexico as a means of helping to conserve these beauties. Help us catch, tag, and release monarchs as a part of this project! 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 2020.

Recommended for ages 8 through adult. Children younger than 16 must attend with a parent or guardian who is able to hike the trails.

Hiking terrain info: Easy to moderate difficulty; gravel and natural surfaces; up to 2 miles.

FREE to attend. No advance registration is required.
