Butterfly Tagging

At Myrtle Beach State Park


Join the Nature Center crew as a citizen scientist to try and tag migrating monarch butterflies. We will first meet at the nature center for a brief introduction to monarchs and their migration patterns. We will then walk down to the maritime grassland to search for monarchs. Butterfly flight is unpredictable since it is dependent on temperature, wind, nectar flower source, and weather. We could walk up to 1/4 mile searching for butterflies..
