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 lifecycle 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 released after they are tagged.
