How in the world do you tag a monarch butterfly? Find out at our annual Monarch Tagging event at Hitchcock Nature Center. Discover more about monarch butterflies, their unusual lifestyle and life cycle, and miraculous migration to Mexico. Learn how to catch and handle monarchs, determine gender, and properly tag them in the wild as a part of a national research project. All monarchs will be release after they are tagged. Bring a butterfly net if you have one, or share a park net if you don't.

Tags and refreshments provided. Pre-registration is required by September 5th. Cost for pre-registered individuals: $6.00 per adult and $5.00 per child ages 6-18. Children 5 and under admitted free. Cost the day of the event: $8.00 per person, if space is available.

Please call 712-328-5834 to register for either the 9:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m., or 11:30 a.m. event. Weather permitting.
