Join us for an afternoon of monarch butterfly merriment! The Southern Appalachians are extremely important to the survival of the Monarch Butterfly, as many migrate longitudinally through our region each Fall. At this event, we’ll discuss ways to support the survival of this imperiled species and learn about conservation efforts at the Arboretum and beyond. We’ll also get to know the monarch’s host plant, milkweed, as we search for caterpillars and eggs. We’ll have fun monarch-related activities available throughout the afternoon and end the program with a monarch butterfly release!
October 8, 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Starting Location: Education Center Lobby
