Learn about the monarch butterfly

September 22, 2012

Learn the life cycle of the amazing monarch butterfly Saturday, Oct. 13, at Acton Nature Center.

Two sessions are scheduled – 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., and 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The king of the butterflies is in the midst of its epic migration from Southern Canada to the mountains of Central Mexico.

The Oct. 13 journey will include training on the use of a butterfly net and the actual capture and release of a live monarch. (If conditions prohibit the capture of wild butterflies, homegrown monarchs will be tagged and released to begin their journey to Mexico.)

How do they know where Mexico is? Come find out!

The event is sponsored by Rio Brazos Master Naturalists, Acton Nature Center and Hood County Development District #1.

Acton Nature Center is at 6900 Smoky Hill Ct. Call 817-326-6005 or email [email protected]
