Monarch Release Party!

Saturday, Sep 15, 2018

10:00am – 12:30pm

Join us at Nahant Marsh for this FREE event, with fun for the whole family! We will be tagging and feeding monarchs for the Monarch Watch Citizen Science Program throughout the morning. There will also be education stations and other insect-related activities available. 200 Monarchs will be released from the site at noon. Monarch sponsorships are available for $25 each or 2 for $40. Each sponsor will receive a certificate (note: this is a sponsorship program for Monarch conservation at Nahant Marsh- no butterflies will be received). You do not need to have sponsored a Monarch to attend.

Guests are welcome to stay and explore the preserve after the event. The bird blind, dock, and viewing platforms are all accessible on flat terrain. Binoculars, guidebooks, and nets will be available for loan until the Education Center closes at 3 p.m.

The Friends of Nahant Marsh will also be holding a goodwill donation bake sale at the event.

Donations appreciated. Registration is encouraged.
