How does an animal weighing no more than a paperclip journey up to 2,500 miles? Join a VINS educator to learn about the Monarch Butterfly and their incredible fall migration. Learn all about how and why birds and butterflies fly south for the winter, and meet some of the raptor ambassadors who’s cousins are embarking on their own migration this fall. Next join the VINS research team for the opportunity to tag migrating Monarchs as they pass through VINS and get the chance to see these incredible insects up close, while learning about their amazing adaptations and life cycle. Wrap up the day with some seed bombs and crafts that will help you jump start your own pollinator garden that will bring Monarchs to your own backyard!

*Pre-registration is required.
