About the Event
25 year Pittsburgh Zoo Staff and Docent Volunteer June Bernard will present Monarchs on the Move, a presentation on the magnificent Monarch butterfly. Discover interesting facts about the life cycle of these bright orange and black butterflies, their amazing metamorphosis and their incredible annual 3,000-mile tri-country migration. Monarchs are currently in migration in our area through mid-October. You will learn about where to find eggs and caterpillars, examples of simple equipment needed to raise and release them and gardening tips on which nectar and host plants will attract them. Discover how you can become a citizen scientist by tagging and releasing Monarchs for the fall migration through the University of Kansas’ Monarch Watch program. Monarch butterflies are in decline due to rapid loss of habitat across North America. Be a part of the movement to help this endangered species and ensure that future generations will continue to enjoy the magic of the Monarch migration.
