Program Description

Event Details

Monarch Butterflies are especially attracted to the nectar of the native Iowa plants. Joel Van Roekel, Supervisor of Environmental Education, Des Moines Parks and Recreation, will show us how to tag and release Monarch Butterflies with fun activities and games! Bring the entire family together early in the evening for stories, songs and occasional crafts. It's a great way for busy parents to relax and listen to stories with their children. You can even wear your jammies!
