  • Overview

    Monarch butterflies are on the wing migrating through Indiana and on to their overwintering grounds in central Mexico. Celebrate this fascinating insect at the nature center. Enjoy a Mariachi band that adds the Mexican culture of celebration, The Day of the Dead, which includes the monarchs as an important symbol. Take home a milkweed plant to provide food for next year’s caterpillars. There will be music crafts, games for kids, face painting and a bounce house. If all goes as planned, we will have the opportunity to release monarch butterflies! Stay for lunch served from a local food truck.

    3:00 pm: A special speaker will discuss the needs of monarchs, other butterflies, and pollinators. Learn what to plant to attract these beautiful insects.
