Monarch Tagging Workshop with Audrey Armstrong

August 21 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Date: Saturday, August 21 (rain date Sunday, August 22)
Time: 1 pm to 3 pm
Location: Isaac Lake Boat Launch just north or Wiarton
How is it that Monarch butterflies migrate 4,000 km to a place they’ve never been before? Why do we still need Citizen Scientists to assist in a North American monarch tagging initiative? How can they fly with a tiny “license plate” stuck to one wing? And how can you help monarchs in our Grey/Bruce area? These questions and your questions will be addressed in the afternoon tagging workshop. We hope to net and tag monarchs to send off to Mexico, so wear your running shoes and bring your insect nets (some will be provided).
Other Information: This is a family friendly event.
Numbers to be determined by COVID regulations.
