Help track winged wonders

Take part in a monarch butterfly catch and release event at PPL’s Brunner Island Wetlands from 10 a.m. to noon. Saturday, Sept. 18.

Join us as we catch, tag and release monarch butterflies to help the University of Kansas track migration patterns. The Brunner Island Environmental Preserve is a certified Monarch Butterfly Waystation, a “rest stop” for butterflies to eat on their journey between the northern locations where they reproduce and Mexico, where they spend the winter months. Bring a net if you have one.

The program, which is free and great for all ages, will take place at the Wood Duck Pavilion at PPL’s Brunner Island wetlands located off Wago Road, across from Gate A. For directions, click here
The rain date for this event is Sunday, Sept. 19.
