Migration Station

Six interactive stations allow guests to simulate the migration of monarch butterflies and the dangers and challenges they face. Learn how the butterflies escape predators, navigate storms, find food and more. After completing each hands-on challenge, participants receive part of a monarch butterfly to assemble. The final stage of the journey is to hang their completed butterfly on the Monarch tree!

This area is open throughout the festival on the lawn next to the parking garage.
