Event description

Description

Registration for this event is open to all

Madison Audubon works with monarchwatch.org to capture and tag butterflies at our Goose Pond Sanctuary for monitoring efforts throughout their migration route. You can help with this important citizen science effort!

DETAILS:

- Registration is open to all! If you're interested in joining Madison Audubon, you can do so by clicking here or by including a $20 donation in your ticket purchase.

- Registration IS REQUIRED and gets you access to one session of activities, including information about monarch life history, monarch pursuit and tagging, information on how to track your monarchs, and ideas for how to support monarchs at home.

- There are multiple sessions for monarch tagging. Please be sure to attend the one you register for.

- Children are welcome to come with an adult - we love having kids participate!

- Please limit your ticket purchase to 6, to allow others to get in on the fun as well.

- We cannot accommodate rain dates or refunds. If the weather is poor (raining, cold, windy), we will still meet at the site and do monarch-related indoor activities!

MORE ABOUT MONARCH DECLINES:

According to the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the recognizable orange-and-black butterfly species is in trouble. "Threats, including loss of milkweed habitat needed to lay their eggs and for their caterpillars to eat, are having a devastating impact on their populations and the migration phenomenon. Unless we act now to help the Monarch, this amazing animal could disappear in our lifetime. The state of Monarchs reflects the health of the American landscape and its pollinators. Monarch declines are symptomatic of environmental problems that also pose risks to food production, the spectacular natural places that help define our national identity, and our own health. Conserving and connecting habitat for monarchs will benefit many other plants and animals, including critical insect and avian pollinators, and future generations of Americans."
