Tagging monarchs

Garden volunteers Carolyn and John Turner are keen on butterflies, to be sure, but to have a goal of getting 100 monarchs 'tagged' during the fall migration as part of MonarchWatch is a commitment.

MonarchWatch is a great program because it helps us follow monarchs, and understand more about the biology of a fascinating insect - basically a 'Citizen Science' project.

These are images of John and Carolyn tagging monarchs on the afternoon of our Butterfly Garden planting.
