Sycamore, IL- It’s a cycle we all know by heart: the caterpillar hatches from the egg, goes into a chrysalis, and emerges as a butterfly. But how many of us have actually seen it firsthand? Join us for “Monarchs!” at the Midwest Museum of Natural History on Sunday, August 15 at 2:00 pm, free with admission.
Janie Grillo, a volunteer from Monarch Watch, will give a family-friendly presentation on the Monarch Butterfly. See live Monarchs in different stages of life, marvel at their amazing migration to Mexico, and learn how you can attract butterflies to your own yard. There will be butterfly crafts to keep the little ones busy, and at the conclusion of the program you’ll watch Grillo tag and release Monarchs! (How do you tag a butterfly? You’ll have to come and find out!)
