Monarch Migration
One hour program

Every year 100 million monarch butterflies make an extraordinary journey, some of them traveling all the way from Canada to Mexico, where they will spend the winter. Students undergo metamorphosis in this experiential activity, turning into butterflies as they migrate to their overwintering habitat in Mexico and experiencing firsthand the challenges that monarch butterflies face journeying south.
