Monarch Tagging at Sioux City Prairie
"We're looking for places where migratory monarchs hang out in the evening," Theresa Kruid, Naturalist, said. "Migrating monarch butterflies roost in trees and bushes, sometimes by the thousands, from the last week in August to the third week of September."
Volunteers interested in helping tag butterflies are also being sought. "This is a great activity for the whole family," Kruid said.
Sign up to help tag or report migratory monarchs, or pre-register for this event by calling the Dorothy Pecaut Nature Center at (712) 258-0838 or email Theresa Kruid at firstname.lastname@example.org . This event is Co-sponsored by The Nature Conservancy in Iowa and the Woodbury County Conservation Board. The event is free.
The program will begin at 6:00 p.m. Wear sturdy walking shoes and dress for being outdoors. For more information contact Dorothy Pecaut Nature Center, 712-258-0838, email@example.com .
