The Sterling Nature Center is a roosting and nectaring resource for migrating monarch butterflies. Join Elzibeth Volk, retired biologist, for a presentation on the life cycle and migration patterns of monarch butterflies. She will also cover identifying monarch butterflies, differentiating them from viceroy butterflies, how to determine gender, and explain the tagging program and procedure to participants. Data collected will be submitted to Monarch Watch, the organization that oversees the international monarch tagging program. We will then go out into the field for a demonstration of netting and tagging, weather permitting. Participation is limited; please email the center at email@example.com to reserve a spot.
