About the Event

     Every year in September, the Monarch butterfly begins its long migration south to Mexico. To help document this migration, Clayton County Conservation will collect, tag, and release monarch butterflies at Osborne Park. Join us for this fun adventure Friday, September 1st at 5:30 p.m. at the Osborne Conservation Center. 

     The iconic Monarch butterfly has long been in peril, but there are signs of hope. The dedicated efforts of countless conservation organizations, as well as concerned citizens, has helped stave off their decline. Come and celebrate these amazing creatures with the tagging and release of live monarchs! Also feel free to bring your own Monarch’s to be tagged and be a part of this nationwide effort to save a species.
