The monarch butterflies are on their way! Every year in late summer, the super-generation of monarchs make their way to overwintering grounds in Mexico. Come learn about monarch butterflies, their life cycle, and their miraculous migration to Mexico as we teach you how we catch, handle, and tag monarchs for research.

After learning about these amazing migrators, participants are invited to hit the trails with nets in search of monarch butterflies. Staff will show you how we tag and release them. You are welcome to bring your own butterfly net or use one of ours. This event will be held entirely outside.

The cost for this event is $5.00 per person and pre-registration is required. Children age 3 & under are free and do not need a reservation. This fee includes your admission to the park & use of equipment.

Please meet at the Loess Hills Lodge. For questions not answered online please call 712-545-3283.

Please note there are four different time slots to choose from for this event:
