From the tiny, pale egg to the vibrant wings of the adult, Winged Wonders Education brings to life the metamorphosis of the Monarch butterfly with live specimens, mini-lessons, children’s literature, drama, and art activities that inspire wonder and tap into children’s natural curiosity about the world of butterflies. Visit the butterfly house and discover how it feels to hold and feed a live Monarch. Our Monarchs will be released from our schoolyard at the close of the event. Be sure to join us and make a wish that will ride the wings of a Monarch during its two thousand mile journey.
MEET A MONARCH ENTHUSIAST
Butterfly enthusiast, Winged Wonders Education founder, and former Friends School Haverford teacher, Ann Ward, offers her unique butterfly program that teaches children about Monarch migration and the wonders of the outdoors.
FEED A MONARCH BUTTERFLY
Befriend a Monarch in the butterfly tent. Here, you’ll be able to hold and feed a live Monarch butterfly. Observe as live butterflies enjoy a tasty nectar snack and flutter about the tent, landing on their host plants and human friends! Use the magnifying glass to take a closer look at these beautiful creatures.
TAG AND RELEASE PROGRAM
Come learn about University of Kansas’ Monarch Watch’s tag and release program and lend a helping hand as we tag and track our own butterflies for the fall migration to central Mexico. Tiny, numbered stickers (tags) are adhered to the hind wings of each butterfly before being released. Children help record information that allows them to track the incredible journey of the tagged Monarchs.
ART PROJECTS | FACE PAINTING | SPECIAL SNACKS
There will be Monarch-inspired art projects and face painting for our young enthusiasts, and special snacks for everyone to enjoy. This event is FREE and open to the public. Please RSVP below.
