Monarch Tagging at Acton Nature Center



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 migrating from southern

Canada to the mountains of central Mexico.

We will introduce you to the Monarch Watch Program, which has

studied this incredible butterfly for twenty years.

Your journey will include 5 education stations including

and the actual capture and release of live butterflies.

Volunteers will assist you with how to gently capture and tag Monarchs.

How do they know where Mexico is? Come find out!

 Long pants and closed toed shoes are recommended attire.

(cactus needles….OUCH!)
