Monarchs with Master Naturalist
Aug 24 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Nerstrand State Park’s restored prairie is a late summer gathering spot for Monarch butterflies filling up with wildflower nectar in preparation for their migration to Mexico. Meet at the park office and then carpool to the prairie for a guided tour with Master Naturalists. Choose from 0.9 mile or 1.4 mile hike. Long pants and closed toe shoes are recommended. Will be cancelled in case of rain.
