Sep 17th » Des Moines River Water Trail Event

"MONARCH MIGRATION"
 
Join us for a fun evening of catching, tagging and releasing monarch butterflies as they begin their annual migration. Monarch butterflies cannot survive our cold Iowa winters, instead, they travel up to 3000 miles south to forests high in the mountains of Mexico. Monarchs will stop to nectar along the way which is to our advantage. Not only do they help to pollinate our plants, but it also gives us the opportunity to see them. We will be assisting with monarch research by catching the butterflies, placing a small tag on their wing, recording their information and releasing them to continue on their long journey. These tags help researchers to learn about the migration of the monarch. The exact location of this event will be determined as the event approaches based on nectarine plants in bloom. This is an official Des Moines River Water Trails event cosponsored by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources and Jefferson County Conservation. There is no cost for this program, however, Pre-registration is required. For more information, please call (641)-919-6822 or email dmriverwatertrail@gmail.com. Nets and tags will be provided but please wear long pants and tennis shoes.
