Monarch Butterfly & Pollinator Festival

Get your wings on for our third annual Monarch Butterfly and Pollinator Festival!

It takes flight at the Pearl with a People for Pollinators Parade, monarch butterfly tagging demos, educational booths and activities for the whole family. The highlight: a high noon butterfly release at Pearl Park. Five of the hundreds of butterflies tagged at our Festival last year made the successful trek to Mexico and were recovered on the forest floor there in March of 2018.

Don’t miss this special day of celebration and citizen science that unfolds during peak monarch butterfly migration season in our very own “Texas Funnel.”
