The Monarch Butterfly has been a hot topic for many years now. Join Pine Lake State Park Interpreter Jovis Shoemaker to learn more about how Monarchs travel, feed and reproduce. Meet at 11 a.m. at the Pine Lake West Prairie (next to Eldora's Gunderson Park). In addition to learning about Monarchs, participants will also make butterfly seed balls, a type of seed dispersal system that can allow for you to bring butterfly-attracting plants right to your backyard. This free event is open to all ages.
