This annual event at St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge celebrates the migration of the Monarch butterfly, with tours, butterfly tagging demonstrations, presentations, live butterfly garden, butterfly plant sale, crafts, exhibits and more. The event runs from 10 AM to 4 PM. Call 850.925.6121 for more information or view the event flyer here or visit the website.
My family and I have gone to this for the past several years. TallyKid even made a book about monarch butterflies and their growth and migration process after becoming so intrigued with them a few years back because of this event.
Everywhere you walk, you’ll see 100′s of butterflies around you….so many that they may even land on your head or hand momentarily. It’s a breathtakingly beautiful sight, no to be missed, and so fun for the kids too. Bring your cameras!
All programs are free after refuge entry fee of $5 per car.
