Monarchs Butterfly Festival at Audubon Community Nature Center

Audubon Community Nature Center


The Audubon Community Nature Center will hold Monarch Butterfly Festival from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 25 at the Community Nature Center, 1600 Riverside Road, Jamestown.

This festival celebrates the life and times of the monarch butterfly. This once-abundant butterfly has been disappearing from the landscape in recent years, though it is slowly recovering from record low populations.

Learn more about the plight of the monarchs and what we can do to improve their situation. Attendees will enjoy live caterpillars and butterflies, use insect nets to catch insects around the pond and watch volunteer researchers tag butterflies to help track their migration to Mexico.

There will also be nature hikes, food, monarch tattoos, self-guided walks and more. Scouts and others can earn a Monarch Butterfly Fun Patch.

Tickets $8 for adults and $6 for Community Nature Center members and children ages 3 to 15. Children 2 and younger get in free.

Presale tickets are available online.
