Sinnemahoning – Monarch program at Sinnemahoning State Park on Saturday September 17
Marvelous Migrating Monarchs
Saturday, September 17, 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM
Every fall thousands of Monarch butterflies migrate from Pennsylvania to their overwintering grounds in central Mexico. Join Sinnemahoning State Park staff to learn about monarch butterflies, their annual migration, and what we can do to help these marvelous insects to survive.
This free, family-friendly program will begin with a presentation in the Park Office & Wildlife Center classroom, followed by a short walk around the gardens and fields to look at monarch habitat and, hopefully, catch a glimpse of these beautiful butterflies. If monarch butterflies are present, the group will have an opportunity to participate in Monarch Watch butterfly tagging. Arial nets will be provided and participants will be able to help tag and release the butterflies.
