CANCELLED – Monarch March

March 22, 2020 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

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 celebration is a fitting tribute to the winged creatures that graze our landscape each spring. Festivities will include 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.

Following the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Texas Department of State Health Services, and the Brazos County Health District in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of College Station has decided to cancel this event.
