Monarch Tagging

September 21, 2019 - 6:00 pm

National Institute for Fitness and Sports

A White River Festival Event

Join Indiana Wildlife Federation for monarch tagging. You will net, tag, and release monarch butterflies as they pass through Indiana on their way to their wintering grounds in Mexico. All data will be reported to the national citizen science monitoring effort operated by Monarch Watch. This activity will explore the wonder of one of North America’s most charismatic pollinators and highlight the importance of protecting vital waterways and the habitat they provide for wildlife.

Meet on the back patio of the National Institute for Fitness and Sport (NIFS). We walk down to the trail where the Monarch Sanctuary is after a brief introduction.
