At this event, we’ll be tagging (putting a tiny sticker on) the dorsal wing of over 200 monarchs and then releasing them into the Garden. The data from these recaptures will then be used by researchers at the University of Kansas to determine the pathways taken by migrating monarchs, the influence of weather on the migration, and the survival rate of the butterflies.
