Come learn about the butterflies of Central Texas (with a special emphasis on the amazing migrating monarch). Participants will learn all about the butterfly life cycle, ecology, common Austin species, and even how to attract butterflies to your very own backyard!
After a short presentation we will take a hike on the preserve and look for butterflies, caterpillars, and host plants. We will also try and find some migrating monarch butterflies and preform a tagging demonstration.
Please bring a water bottle and wear supportive shoes such as hiking boots or tennis shoes. Long pants and a sun hat are recommended. Hike is limited to 15 individuals ages 8 and up.
