The Monarch migration has begun. For the second year, Butterfly Gardens of Saugeen Shores will be tagging Monarchs throughout September. Tagging Monarchs is an exciting experience for people to get up close to these wonderful butterflies. Monarch tags are given a unique code, web site and email so that researchers know where the Monarch was tagged and how far it traveled. Last year one of our Monarchs was recovered in Mexico! (Take a look at the photo of the Monarch with the tag on its hind wing).
Join the Butterfly Gardens of Saugeen Shores for its tagging of Monarchs day in Southampton on Saturday, September 3 from 1 – 3 pm at the Big Flag. In the meantime, take a look at our monarch tagging video.
