Monarch Program at Sinnemahoning Park

 

Every fall thousands of Monarch butterflies migrate from Pennsylvania to their overwintering grounds in central Mexico. Join Sinnemahoning State Park staff for Marvelous Migrating Monarchs to learn about monarch butterflies, their annual migration, and what we can do to help these marvelous insects to survive.
The program will be held Saturday, Sept. 8 from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
This free, family-friendly program will begin with a presentation in the Park Office & Wildlife Center classroom, followed by a short walk around the gardens and fields to look at monarch habitat and, hopefully, catch a glimpse of these beautiful butterflies. If monarch butterflies are present, the group will have an opportunity to participate in Monarch Watch butterfly tagging. Arial nets will be provided and participants will be able to help tag and release the butterflies
