As spring approaches, monarch butterflies are preparing to make their annual 2,500-mile journey back to their homeland in the north. Among their stops along the way will be the Brazos Valley.
To commemorate the iconic black and orange butterflies’ return to Aggieland, the College Station Parks & Recreation Department’s Monarch March event from 1-4 p.m. on Sunday at Lick Creek Park Nature Center offers a variety of interactive educational activities.
The festivities are a fitting tribute to the winged creatures that graze our landscape each spring. The program includes a walk through Lick Creek Park Nature Center’s Monarch Waystation, butterfly face painting, tips on how to create your own waystation or butterfly garden, and much more.
Community organizations such as Friends of Lick Creek, Texas Master Naturalists, and Butterflies of the Brazos will host a booth with activities that instill a greater appreciation for wildlife.
