Releasing the tagged Monarch
Every year we participate in Monarch Watch where we capture and tag Monarch butterflies that are en route to their winter resting spot in Mexico. Two of our students live next to prime habitat for these marvelous Monarchs and have been catching them for us to tag. One of our mom's got a terrific shot just as her son was releasing a Monarch. You can clearly see the tag. These tags are used to determine how far a Monarch has traveled from its where it was tagged. You can go to the Monarch Watch website to learn more about this program.
