Monarchs are one of the
most recognizable butterflies in the world. They migrate over 2000 miles
through the Dallas area in the spring and fall. Did you know that Monarchs are
declining and at an all-time low? Come learn more about our state insect, its
life cycle and its amazing migration. You'll also find out more about how you
can help to protect their habitat during their journey though Texas. After the
discussion, we will walk to the butterfly garden to look for Monarchs and their
favorite nectar and host plants.
This butterfly talk is geared toward persons ages 10+; however,
interested younger children may attend with a parent or guardian. Each
butterfly talk runs from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. The talks are included in
general admission and are FREE for Heard Museum members. Reservations are not required; spots are available on a first-come-first-serve basis.
