Monarchs will be on their way to Mexico and coming back through our area in mid-September. Make the most of this event with a trip to Tennessee River Gardens near Raccoon Mountain on Sunday, September (30). Tennessee Aquarium lead horticulturist Christine Hunt, steward of our butterfly garden (will be joined by insect experts on the Aquarium education staff), will lead this local tagging adventure that’s sure to be fun for the whole family! You’ll be equipped with butterfly nets and registered materials to tag these winged-marvels. Please note: this activity involves walking (and running) through fields and off trail so sturdy footwear or hiking boots, long pants and appropriate sun protection are recommended. Also bring plenty of water or drink and snacks or lawn chairs or a blanket for sitting.
