Monarch Watch Tagging Event

Baker Wetlands Discovery Center

Once again, Monarch Watch, the Jayhawk Audubon Society, and the Baker Wetlands Discovery Center are sponsoring Monarch butterfly tagging for the public. There is no charge to participants and no experience is necessary - so bring yourself, your kids (all ages), your friends, and your neighbors! If you have a net, bring that too, though Monarch Watch and JAS will provide the tags, nets, and instructions in how to net and tag monarchs. The monarchs are usually roosting or clustering (sometimes in spectacular concentrations!) until around 8:30AM. As it warms up, they begin foraging on the flowers.

IMPORTANT: This year’s tagging event will again be held at the Baker Wetlands Discovery Center - 1365 N. 1250 Rd. Lawrence, KS 66046. There are lots of Sunflowers and Bidens so the area should be full of monarchs on the 16th.
