Magnificent Monarch September 14, 2019-Madison Heights

Where do monarchs go in the winter? Can you believe they fly more than 2,000 miles to reach their over-wintering ground in Mexico? Join this event to learn about this feat. Make your own paper butterfly that will actually fly (via U.S. Mail) to Mexico City, and spend the winter months there. Students will tag a live monarch and keep track of its journey south. Make a craft and have a treat on this special day. $5/person. Pre-registration with payment required. Call 248-858-0916 weekdays or Red Oaks Nature Center on Saturdays.
