Monarch tagging event scheduled for Saturday

Published: Wednesday, Sept. 13, 2017 10:05 a.m. CDT

Monarch butterfly tagging is planned at 4 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. Saturday at South Tailwater Recreation Area at Lake Red Rock. 

Join the Monarch Watch volunteer effort. Volunteers will attempt to tag some of these unique butterflies as they pass through the Red Rock area during their fall migration. Data from tagged butterflies may be used to help searchers track the monarchs’ journey to Mexico. Meet near the big picnic shelter, wearing long pants and closed toe shoes.

The activity will be canceled if raining. For more information, contact the Corps of Engineers office at 641-828-7522 or via email at lakeredrock@usace.army.mil
