  • Monarch Tagging
    Thursday September 14th | 06:00 PM - 07:30 PM

    Mid September is peak abundance time for monarchs passing through Indianapolis on their migration southward. Around this time, these American icons congregate along vital bodies of water like the White River where they refresh themselves during their arduous trip to Mexico. Nowhere else in the world do butterflies undergo a mass migration like the majestic monarch’s. Join us on the Urban Wilderness Trail where we will take part in this unique wonder by netting and tagging monarchs before releasing them back to their journey.

    This event is free and open to the public.
