The Hop'n Blueberry Farm Annual Monarch Tag and Release Event Is GO!
After some question as to whether I would have monarchs available for our annual Tag and Release Event, the answer is YES. I have netted around 15 for sure tagable butterflies and more are here at the farm today. That means bring your kids, bring your parents, bring your cousins and uncles and, of course just bring yourself tomorrow, Oct. 7 at 1 pm. for a great time.
I will offer a tour of the farm and explain what tagging is all about as well as give a educational breakdown of all you could possibly want to know about these magnificent insects. We will then gather up volunteers to net monarchs that we will tag as well as tagging the 15 that I have already.
Come and join us to bid farewell to these hardy travelers bound for Mexico. If you have a butterfly net bring it, I will supply 3 of them. The event is free and of course donations are welcome to help my farm further the study and conservation of the monarchs.
