Be a part of one of the most remarkable natural events on the planet! Join Butterfly House volunteers as we partner with Monarch Watch, a research and conservation program, to tag migratory monarch butterflies. From Springfield, a monarch can travel about 1,600 miles to its overwintering site in Mexico.

Help local experts: tag a butterfly, release it, and receive the tag code and information form Monarch Watch so you can track if and when the butterfly is found. This hands-on program from the University of Kansas is a unique opportunity for all ages to learn about monarchs, their habitat, life cycle, and amazing migration.
