About the Event
Have you noticed adult monarch butterflies flying around lately? September 3 –15 is PEAK MIGRATION WEEK for our area. Adults are riding the southerly winds during the day and feeding in the late afternoon. They roost in trees nearby overnight and are off again the next morning.
Scientists who study monarch migration use information gathered from observations recorded online and tagging programs to learn more about this amazing natural phenomenon.
Everyone is invited to help SCCD & UVLT collect more information through monarch tagging. There is no charge to participants and no experience is necessary.
Directions: Route 12 in Charlestown to Morningside Lane or Chestnut Flats Rd and right onto Morningside Lane, left onto Richardson Rd. A dirt road. Look for signs for the event. Parking area at end. You will see a kiosk. Continue walking down the road to the barn. Tagging will happen in the fields near the pond. Look for a tent. Raindate: September 15th
