Migration Celebration

Saturday, September 16, 2023

Monarch butterflies are on the wing migrating through Indiana and on to their overwintering grounds in central Mexico. Celebrate this fascinating insect at the nature center. Enjoy a Mariachi band that adds to the Mexican culture's celebration of The Day of the Dead, which includes the monarchs as an important symbol.
Take home a milkweed plant to provide food for next year’s caterpillars. There will be music, crafts, games for kids, hikes, and other activities for families. If all goes as planned, we will have the opportunity to release monarch butterflies! Stay for lunch served from a local food truck.

3:00 pm: A special speaker will discuss the needs of monarchs, other butterflies, and pollinators. Learn what to plant to attract these beautiful insects.
