Monarch Tagging at The Ridges

The public is invited to learn about monarch butterflies during a program entitled “Monarch Tagging,” sponsored by the Ridges Sanctuary on Friday and Saturday, August 27 and 28, from 10 – 11:30 am. The programs will be held at The Ridges’ Marshall Cabin and are designed for all ages.

During the hands-on program, participants will learn about the different stages in the monarch’s life cycle, their wintering areas in Mexico, and their multi-generational return in the spring. The program will conclude by tagging monarchs to track their migration routes.

“Monarch Tagging” is part of a series of programs entitled “No Family Left Inside.” The programs are offered by the Door County YMCA and The Ridges, and are designed to give parents and children the opportunity to explore nature together.

The Marshall Cabin is located at 8288 Highway Q, Baileys Harbor. The cost for the program is $10 per family. Advance registration is requested. For more information or to make reservations call 920.839.2802 or visit
