Spend the day with us at the beautiful Acton Nature Center and learn the life cycle of the amazing Monarch butterfly. The king of the butterflies is currently in the midst of its epic migration from southern Canada to the mountains of central Mexico. We will introduce you to the Monarch Watch Program that has studied this incredible butterfly for twenty years. Your journey will include education stations from the migration of the Monarch to the actual capture and release of a live monarch. Volunteers will assist you with how to tag Monarchs.
