PREREGISTRATION REQUIRED (walk-ups will not be permitted). Join CMBO Monarch Monitoring Project naturalists for a stroll through a milkweed-filled meadow to learn about Monarch Butterfly biology and migration. We’ll hope to see monarchs and other butterflies, and we’ll wrap up by tagging one or more monarchs and send them on their way to Mexico. Family-friendly COST: $6 members, $10 nonmembers. IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Due to our Covid-19 guidelines (see below), there will be no sharing of equipment including binoculars or spotting scopes. Binoculars WILL NOT be available for loan from the leaders. Thank you for your understanding.
