Monarch Keepers

Join us at the park to learn about various conservation efforts for the monarch butterfly that you can do at your own home.  We will talk about their natural history, its conservation status, and what types of habitat you can create at home to attract these fluttering fliers.  Flower seeds will be available for you to take home!

NOTE: Program is on Bear Island.  YOU NEED TO PURCHASE A FERRY TICKET TO ATTEND PROGRAM.
