Monarch Butterfly Tagging

After a long hiatus for NFNC we inviting you to become a Citizen Scientist during the 29th season of the Monarch Watch Tagging Program!
Spaces are limited and pre-registration will be required.  Use the links below to link to Eventbrite to reserve your date and time at either 1:00pm or 6:00pm.  You will not need to bring a physical ticket with you.
The main purpose of tagging Monarch Butterflies is to answer questions, while providing knowledge about the origins of Monarchs that reach Mexico. This includes the timing and pace of their migration, mortality during migration, weather influences, and any changes in the geographic distribution. Taggers document the original capture and tagging point, with hopes of learning the geographic location of the Monarch recovery point.
