The Ringgold County Conservation Board is participating in the Monarch Watch tagging program and needs community help capturing Monarch Butterflies to tag!
Join RCCB on September 5 from 10-11:30 a.m. and investigate the life cycle of a Monarch butterfly, discover how to identify male and female Monarchs, study Monarch migration and learn how to tag Monarchs on their journey south to central Mexico.
The program is offered free of charge.
RCCB will provide butterfly nets to catch your own butterfly for this family-friendly event for all ages.
Meet at the Shady Oaks (enclosed) Shelter at Fife’s Grove Park north of Mount Ayr which offers unique prairie walks and butterfly habitat.
Please wear long pants even if it is hot. Tennis shoes/socks, sunscreen, hats and a water bottle are all recommended.
The program will be held outside the shelter to allow practicing of social distancing. Lawn chairs and blankets for sitting are encouraged.
