Monarch Tagging Classes

September 23 @ 5:30pm - 7:30pm

For the eighth year in a row, the Kansas Museum of History and Topeka Zoo have teamed up for the monarch butterfly migration! These beautiful insects migrate through Kansas during the last two weeks of September and we will be waiting for them! We want you to join us for FREE monarch tagging classes that are open to the public.

These classes are held at the Kansas Museum of History and are fun for the whole family! Each class will be from 5:30pm-7:30pm. The first portion is an indoor, interactive education program where audiences learn about monarch butterflies, their importance, and how to catch them. The second part is outdoors in the museum’s prairie, where participants will get nets to catch, tag, and release butterflies! The zoo will provide at least one butterfly net for each family to borrow; you’re welcome to bring a net too if you have one.

The dates are below:

Tuesday, September 20th, 2022
