Tagging Monarchs is an exciting experience for people to get up close to these wonderful butterflies. Butterfly Gardens of Saugeen Shores tags Monarchs as part of citizen scientist from the University of Kansas. All tags are given a unique code, web site and email so that researchers know where the Monarch was tagged and how far it traveled. The last generation of Monarchs (late summer/early fall) are the ones that we tag, as they will make the epic journey to Mexico.
