The Great MonArch Migration Event

Monarch butterflies are heading south for the winter, and the National Park Service and the City of St. Louis are celebrating their journey with the Great MonArch Migration Event. At this festive event, pollinator experts from across the region, including the Missouri Botanical Garden, Saint Louis Zoo and the Missouri Department of Conservation, will lead monarch-themed activities, such as offering pollinator crafts and games, making milkweed seed balls and insect hotels, and sharing monarch butterfly gardening tips. Activities will take place in front of the new west entrance to the Gateway Arch, as well as inside the Arch Visitor Center on the mezzanine. Free refreshments, native plants and seed packets are available while supplies last.

More event details can be found on the City of St. Louis’ website.
