Week Four: Monarchpalooza!

Location: Lincoln Park Noon - 3:30pm

Pick up a Monarch Passport and travel thru BTG's experiential learning event. Journeying thru stations, examine every stage of the monarch life cycle.  Observe and explore egg laying, larve, chrysalis, to the Monarch's full glory. Join BTG guest lecturer Laurie Stralow Harris at Lincoln Park with a hands-on, interactive series of live species.  Docents will facilitate observation, provide commentary, help participants to measure each monarch caterpillar instar, investigate their mouthparts and bite patterns, observe chrysalides, and hand-feed adult butterflies. Engage in this unique exciting guided discovery.

The event culminates when you present your completed passport in order to enter a 20'x10' tent of monarchs. They'll land on you if you wish and can be fed by hand. Plenty of chance for Q and A all along the way. Pick up a magnifying glass and Be Amazed!
