WRN Kids – Monarch Migration and Bug Hunt

WRN Kids – Monarch Migration and Bug Hunt

On Saturday September 29, 2018 the WRN Kids learned about the Monarch butterfly life cycle and migration from Jeff Grant, a grade 10 student who is a butterfly and moth expert.

GRCA naturalist Chris sent the families out on a hike/game that emulated what food and hazards Monarchs would find during their migration.

Next, they went hunting live bugs with nets in the meadow.
