Wildlands Conservancy Monarch Butterfly Tagging

Monarch Butterfly Tagging; September 21st, 11am-12:30pm, Riverview Park in East Penn Township

Monarch tagging is citizen science at its best! The purpose of the tagging is to associate the location of capture with the point of recovery for each butterfly. The data from these recaptures helps to determine the pathways taken by migrating monarchs, the influence of weather on the migration, and the survival rate of the monarchs. Learn how to capture, hold, and tag these fragile beings and then create milkweed seed bombs to help create new habitat. Location: Riverview Park, Palmerton, PA 18071; from PA Turnpike Mahoning Valley, take 209S/Interchange Rd, turn left onto 248E, then right onto 895W/Lehigh St (signs for Bowmanstown). Turn left onto Riverview Road. Park is on your left.
