Save the date! Saturday, September 15, 2018 from 10am-Noon at the South Fork Nature Center on Greers Ferry Lake in Choctaw
One of the fascinating stories in the world of nature is that of the Monarch butterfly migration.
On September 15, from 10:00 am to noon, an event at South Fork Nature Center where we will be assisting scientists in learning more about the “Monarch Migration Phenomenon”. We will be tagging adult Monarchs and releasing them. Some participants will be able to select a butterfly, hold it while it is being tagged, and then release it to nature (please note there will be a limited number of these spaces available; not everyone who attends will be able to hold & release a Monarch). If it survives the trip to Mexico and is found by someone, scientists will be able to add the information about that butterfly to their database.
Learn more about Monarchs by joining us in this citizen science effort at the special nature preserve we call South Fork Nature Center. Find driving directions here!
