Monarch Tagging
Smith Lake Campground Enclosed Shelter (south)
Sunday, September 9
4:00 p.m.

Tagging Monarchs helps provide researchers with data to track their geographic range, migration routes and population status of the butterfly. After a brief description of challenges facing Monarchs, we will venture to the prairie to catch and tag adults as they migrate south to Mexico for the winter. This program will be held weather pending.
