Monarch Watch (Visit Monarch Watch Website) is a program that allows participants to tag and release monarch butterflies as part of a nation-wide, citizen-science initiative to track monarch butterflies on their annual migration from the United States and Canada to Mexico. Monarch Watch was started and is coordinated by the University of Kansas.

Our program will discuss the annual migration of the monarch butterfly and ways that you can assist them as they travel through Missouri. Participating in the tag and release program developed by "Monarch Watch" will be the focus of the program. We will demonstrate how to capture, tag, and release monarch butterflies using the tags from Monarch Watch.

Monarch tagging kits will be available for those who want to tag Monarchs in their own garden. In addition to the general public, we would like to invite science and biology teachers, and other group leaders young and old to participate and take this information back to their classrooms and organizations to further promote the Monarch Migration Program.

Kits include official Monarch Watch adhesive tags, a data sheet to record when and where tagging took place, a net, and instructions on how to properly catch, tag, and release monarch butterflies without harming or otherwise impeding the butterfly's ability to continue on with its migration.

This program is free and open to the public as a community service. For further information, contact the Taney county University of Missouri Extension center at 417-546-4431.
