Monarch Butterfly Day
Monarch Day returns to the Arboretum on September 30!
September is a busy time for monarch butterflies as they undergo their fall migration from Eastern North America to Mexico, and Western North Carolina is a pit stop for some of these busy travelers.
You can celebrate these colorful creatures at Monarch Day, Saturday, September 30, with an amazing collection of activities and events including:
• Kid’s science and art activities
• Monarch butterfly tagging and release demonstrations
• The opening of the Monarchs and Milkweed Exhibit in the Baker Exhibit Center

Monarch Day 2023 promises to be a day full of fun and fanfare! Check back in September for more details.
