Mile Square Regional Park Presents the 2nd Annual Monarch Butterfly Day

Visit Mile Square Regional Park this Saturday, February 5th, from 10 am to 2 pm for the 2nd annual Monarch Butterfly Day.

Children and families can learn everything about the California Western Monarch Butterfly and its habitat with an up-close look at the magnificent creatures while they flutter through the Butterfly Garden and inside netted butterfly enclosures in the park’s Camp Sycamore. Children can help the Butterfly Garden continue to grow by planting one of three different types of milkweed in the garden to attract Monarch Butterflies. More than 100 milkweeds will be available for planting on February 5. Butterfly experts will also be on-site to provide educational information and answer questions about the beautiful and unique specimens.

Additional event activities include children’s crafts, face painting, interpretive center tours and guided nature walks through Mile Square Regional Park’s nature area. Each child in attendance will receive native seeds as a take away to continue to help build safe habitats for Monarch Butterflies and other creatures.
