Tagging Monarch Butterflies
29 Citizen Scientists at Work!
Audrey Armstorng conducted a very successful butterfly tagging workshop at Keppel Croft Gardens, on Saturday, August 28th, 2021.
Tagging is done in late summer as the super generation of butterflies start their migration to Mexico, over 4,700 kilometres away. They overwinter there before starting on the multi-generational flight North in the Spring.
Join us in August, 2022 for the next workshop!
