Time: 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Discover the life of a monarch butterfly at Monarch Tagging, and learn how to tag butterflies so scientists can track their migration from Kansas City to Mexico.
Monarch butterflies that spent last winter in Mexico rode a powerful south wind into the Kansas City region in early April. Now as autumn arrives, those following generations are beginning a migration back south.
The Burr Oak Woods Nature Center in Blue Springs will offer a free Monarch Tagging session from 1 – 3 p.m. on Saturday, September 14. For more information, call Burr Oak Woods at 861-228-3766 or visit Burr Oak Woods at 1401 NW Park Road, Blue Springs, MO.
