Monarch Tagging Day at Crossroads September 7

The public is invited to participate in a monarch butterfly tagging event next Saturday, September 7 in Sturgeon Bay.  Crossroads at Big Creek will be hosting the annual Monarch Tagging Day with guest naturalist Karen Newbern.  After a short program, attendees will be able to spread out through the Big Creek Preserve to capture, tag and release monarch butterflies.  Director Coggin Herringa says every year some families even bring monarchs they capture at home to be tagged at Crossroads.  She says a lot can be learned from the migration of the butterflies.



Newbern’s brief program will be held at 2 pm Saturday at the Collins Learning Center followed by the netting and tagging of Monarchs by anyone who wants to participate.
