Monarch butterfly release with Julie Kring

Monarchs that emerge from their chrysalides in late summer know they can’t stay here in the northern climate with few flowers to drink nectar from, so for centuries they’ve been making their way down to the highlands of Central Mexico for the winter.  You can see these amazing insects, discover the beauty found in every stage of their life cycle, help tag them, and then participate in their release to begin their miraculous, 2,000-mile journey!


Where: AdventureWoods, 6060 Ardleigh St, Philadelphia PA 19138

Cost: Free

All ages welcome!
