Buxton Park


Come discover more about monarch butterflies, their unusual lifestyle and life cycle and their miraculous migration to Mexico. A Warren County Conservation Naturalist will teach you how to catch and handle a monarch, determine gender, and properly tag them in the wild as part of a national research project. All monarchs will be released after they are tagged. Bring a butterfly net if you have one, or share a park net if you don’t. Fun for the whole family!

Space is limited. Please register by September 16th. If you need to cancel please call 515-961-6169 so that someone else may attend.

Please arrive promptly so you don’t miss the instructions for tagging.


This event is fully booked.
