Monarch Butterfly Release
September 3 @ 5:30 pm
Every year in September, the Monarch butterfly begins its long migration south to Mexico. To help document this migration, Clayton County Conservation Board will collect, tag, and release monarch butterflies near Millville. Join this fun adventure Friday, September 3rd at 5:30 p.m.
The iconic Monarch butterfly has long been in peril, but there are signs of hope. The dedicated efforts of countless conservation organizations, as well as concerned citizens, has helped stave off their decline. Come and celebrate these amazing creatures with the tagging and release of live monarchs! If you have a net, bring it. Also feel free to bring your own Monarch’s to be tagged and be a part of this nationwide effort to save a species.
Participants should meet at 5:30 in Millville in the Bootlegger’s parking lot to caravan up to the clover field at Clayton County Conservation’s property called Becker West at 36061 Millville Rd, Colesburg, IA 52035.
