Join CILTI staff and Indiana Wildlife Federation for a hands-on community science event at Nonie Werbe Krauss Nature Preserve to help document the monarchs’ fall migration.
The Monarch Watch Tagging Program is a large-scale community science project that was initiated in 1992 to help understand the dynamics of the monarch’s spectacular fall migration through mark and recapture.
At this event, staff will train attendees to gently capture monarch butterflies in butterfly nets and affix a small numbered sticker to the hindwing. The international monarch monitoring program called Monarch Watch provides stickers and datasheets for this project.
This event is brought to you in partnership with Indiana Wildlife Federation.
