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.
