Monarch Watch

871 days old

Time: 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Activities: Insect study, Outdoor activity, Wildlife conservation
Location: Newport SP

Monarch populations have severely declined over the past few years. We'll look for monarchs in their beginning stages, from eggs to larvae (caterpillars), and collect them so they can be protected through their metamorphosis and released. Come see our active monarch nursery. Meet at the Nature Center.
