*Please note, we do not have a specific date or time set for these events, due to the uncertainty of when the monarchs will be here.
The Most Iconic of North America butterflies is the monarch. Every fall they start a long and challenging voyage from southern Canada and the northern US down to central Mexico to hibernate.
Are you interested in tagging monarchs as they make their journey south? Join us in late September/early October at Texas Discovery Gardens to do just that! Learn how scientists capture, tag, and release monarchs to help biologists track their migration. With the purchase of a ticket, you can tag your very own monarch and release it right here in the gardens!
Due to the uncertainty as to the exact dates, they will actually be flying through North Texas, we will inform you upon their arrival and schedule the event for the weekend(s).
