Learn about the life and migration of the monarch butterfly. We will demonstrate how to tag a monarch and learn why it is done. Then you will be free to wander through the prairie to net monarchs. We will assist you in tagging and releasing them. Some insect nets will be available for use. Please wear long pants and closed shoes (no sandals) to prevent scratches and cuts while in the prairie. All ages are welcome to participate. We all have an inner child who would love to do this. We will meet at the Group Campsite prairie.
The Friends of Hartman Creek are sponsoring these Naturalist Programs at the Park this season. They are free and open to the public, but a State Park Pass is required to enter the park.
Visit our website (https://friendsofhartmancreek.org/) and follow us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/hartmancreekfriends) to get the latest updates on the naturalist programs in the Park. Many more will be added to the schedule.
