Bring your lunch and learn something new at Ranger Craig's Nature Series - The Magic of Monarchs
Texas serves as a critical waystation in the life cycle of the iconic monarch butterfly. From providing nectar sources to power their fall migration to hosting milkweed plants for egg-laying in the spring, central Texas is key to their long-term survival. Monarch enthusiast and Park Ranger Craig Hensley will share his passion for these butterflies, their natural history and what you can do to help them during their migratory stopovers. You are then invited to join him in the field in search of the adults, eggs and larvae of monarchs as well as learn to identify the milkweeds so critical to their survival on Friday, April 13th from 2-4 pm
The Lunch and Learn is suggested for anyone 10 plus but the follow-up field experience can have anyone attend.
