Gateway Park and Preserve

Several different time slots for family groups from 9a-3p that day.

Join Naturalist Mary Bulger to learn about the amazing Monarch Butterfly!  A short outdoor presentation about monarchs including their life cycle, what they eat, what you can do to help increase monarch population, and how we tag and track their migration to central Mexico!  Live caterpillars will be on hand to observe and adult butterflies to tag!

After the program we’ll send you off in the park to catch and tag Monarchs butterflies.

Pre-registration for this program is required, we will be registering family groups of 10 or less. Face coverings are highly encouraged.
