Participants will tag a Monarch butterfly and later release it into the Garden after a brief training session. Three hundred Monarch butterflies will be tagged, recorded and released. All guests will receive a certificate.
Every year thousands of Monarch Butterflies leave the US and begin their migration to Mexico. Did you know that a single Monarch butterfly travels up to 100 miles a day – traveling close to 2,500 miles to their destination of Mexico. In Norfolk, the peak season for migration is September 18 through September 26.
