Migration Madness

$5/adult, $4/child
Free for members
pre-registration required
September 16, 4:00 PM5:00 PM

Early September is such an exciting time of the year as nature plays out its annual migration madness. While birds are probably our best known migrators they are not the only flighted friends who take to the skies and head south. Monarch butterflies are also embarking on their miraculous migration.

Join Quarry Hill naturalists as we learn more about the fall migration of both birds and monarchs and what are their migration motivators. Participate in real citizen science as we catch, tag and release birds moving through the park and nature willing release a tagged monarch bound for Mexico.  


Each program is limited to 20 participants and takes place outdoors. Masks are required for the duration of the program.

Program is offered:
Tuesday Sept. 15, 6 – 7pm
Wednesday Sept. 16, 4 – 5 pm
