With SOAR – Monarch Migration opening at the Garden on October 1, we wanted to make sure that all Garden visitors can learn a thing or two about this beautiful species. We’ve put together a new Seeds of Fun activity sheet that will be available when you enter the Garden starting October 1 that encourages you to become more familiar with the food monarchs and other butterflies like to feast on. This new sheet will lead you on a scavenger hunt through the Children’s Garden, and also provides a fun game that helps you get a monarch to its nectar!

If you’d like to learn more, visit one of our Discovery Stations during October and November. The theme of the Discovery Stations during these two months will be monarch education, including the monarch migration, life cycle and conservation efforts. Our Discovery Stations are open on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., with the exception of October 24 and holiday weekends. If you’d like to download the activity sheet before your visit, it’s available through the link below!
